Fancy Background Shoot

We're opening the doors to the store and setting up 3 different backgrounds for you to sample and photograph our models against. The 3 sets will be individually lit for ample opportunity to pad your portfolio with varied images.

This is a shooting event so bring your camera and normal/mid-range zoom. We provide the lights, backgrounds, and models.

All PROMASTER fabric backgrounds and background stand sets will be %25 off that evening. Pictured above is from a test shoot i did with the PRO red paisley and will be featured at the event. Legs pictured above are not expected to appear. Jess

$10 per person. Contact the store to register without paypal.

    Excellent meetup Jesse and Phil! The lighting was great and the backgrounds really gave the portraits a professional look & elegant look vs the standard background. The models were just amazing they posed wonderfully they were easy to work with and very photogenic.

    A70-200 is good but don't neglect your 18- whatever. You might need it for 3/4 shots.

    The front door opens at 7:25 tonight to give us time to set up after the store closes.
    @ Robin: tripods won't be needed tonight.

    Hey everyone, a good telephoto zoom would be perfect for this shoot. I prefer a[masked] zoom for studio style shooting. It gives nice tight cropping for portrait work and helps compress the backdrop. Settings will be discussed in the shooting event.

    I am using a 70 - 200 lens with a canon 5d mark - Any suggestion on the camera setting?

    January 27, 2013

  • Darrell B.

    Robin,I would go with the[masked] it gives you good mobility and gives the model some space..i like to shoot around the 105 area of the lens for portraits.

    1 · January 27, 2013

  • Robin B.

    Very new to studio photography: what lens(es) do you suggest for this? I have 50mm, 100mm or[masked]mm zoom? Tripods? Thanks
