Tip : about shadows

Ok. A quick tip for you guys.

When shooting a model I love to place them right against the wall, the reason for this is pretty simple. In the first place it’s because my subject now makes contact with something in the real world, instead of just being in front of a plain color. PLUS you can now play with shadows.

Make sure you check your angle of lighting and the pose of the model and you can create some really interesting shadow play on the wall.

And walls …. well we all have them (unless you’re homeless), but than you’re probably not reading this… so the next time you’re shooting a model… don’t think in layers like model, space, seamless but FLATTEN THOSE LAYERS and MERGE them together into one interactive shot…

you’ll see it all blends in much nicer.
And now enough of those Photoshop jokes 😀
