I wanted to try create a simple silhouette in the studio. How I did this was by placing the model in front of a continuous light source. I placed my camera on a tripod on the opposite side of the model from where the light is positioned.
Here was the outcome of the the shoot.
I wanted to try and create a lighter background rather than it just being all black. I placed a flash on low power behind/next to the continus light. I also asked the model to turn around because I found that it was difficult to hide the lights and its stands. Here are my attempts at creating a silhouette with a light background and set up.
I couldn’t quite get rid of the stand fully so I decided to remove the continus light altogether, this was at the risk of losing the golden light from around the models head. What I finished with was a gray to black background with a silhouette of the model.
I think the shoot turned out well and I am pleased with the outcome.
