    Lots of big talk about Zack Arias lately, and yes, he's awesome.

    After reading his page for the last week or so, I've most of the stuff to complete his "look".

    I took the time to close my shop for 15 minutes or so to setup, adjust the strobes, and set the camera on a timer. The BG is not super white, but a creamish color, which worked. I do however have super white on order.

    Here's the setup shot:

    Yes, I'm aware, that it's cluttered and ugly.

    3-430ex, two which are triggered via Radio Popper, and one is being controlled through Canon's IR system. The master is a 580exI, which is mounted on camera, with the light outputs set on manual.

    In PP, select the doge tool and set your tonal range to "highlight". Dodge all the dark areas, and crop to size. For my first test shot, I think it came out pretty well.

    I'm excited to test this setup on a friend's clothing line. :noes:

    Standing on towels, cause I run an auto inspection shop, and I step on grime all day. To keep the tileboards clean, I gotta walk on towels. I could have taken off my shoes, but I'm too impatient to put them back on.


    :o

    I love my shop :bigthumb:

    You really don't need all that much room. I shot this in my living room. Of course I had to move some shit out of the way but it was still very doable.

    I might do something like that. They're making us do GODDAMN composites in one of my classes and I find it would be easier to cut out of the background when its all white.
