Lighting Playtime: Stofen, Vivitar 285HV, Canon 10D and Blown Back Drops

19 September 2008 by cat

I wasn’t much in the mood for arranging my face today so I thought I’d try an idea that’s been bouncing around my head for a few days – a blurred, backlit portrait.

Canon 10D
Vivitar 285HV
Cable release
PC Sync cable
lighting stand
and a blank piece of wall

Mix together in an appropriate way. Camera pointing at subject, flash (on 1/2 power) with stofen behind subject at shoulder height. Subject, in this case, holding the cable release. Auto-focus off and focused at the very minimum.

The only post-processing done – added a vignette, image size and saved as jpg!
