Had I known about this, I would not have bought the professional backdrop from Ebay seller: https://www.ebay.com/usr/sellerwarehouse It was only $20 but still, the only way to make money is to lower expenses.

Really interesting approach to balancing the background and foreground exposures. Classic building a shot “one light at a time”. I’m a light meter and flash meter person and I have never done it this way. With me it would be just a matter of getting the exposure on the face right and then setting the background three stops over. Without being critical, this not the method I would choose but it’s a great option for those who don’t use or like hand held meters. To be honest, I had never thought about it that much. And yes: 100% agree on… Read more »

why not just use a flash meter?

Have the background 2.5 stops above the key portrait light.

Hi Tony, I recently purchased SDP book and it's really great, thanks. Can you please let me know if I'm using 50mm (1.8) lense for Nikon D7200, is it possible for me go less than 1.8f shutter speed. Because the camera doesn't allow me to.

Man she is attractive. Attractive couple and great video.

George Eisenberger

Excellent and very helpful. Thanks


newbie to photography here, when do photographers need to use the lens you are using here vs. a regular lens (non-pro or non-grey)? Would a standard lens work the same way?

Hi Gavin, I saw a demo of your where you used circular coloured gels on a studio flash head (not speed light) with grey background and created a fab white circle with coloured edges, can you please tell me what those gels were?

One thing many of us missed. Do we need to attach a wire to the flash or is it automatic when you click on the camera The Flash will work

I have a backlit 5'x8' opaque acrylic panel (750 w/s strobe into an umbrella,) so my problems are even worse, but I suspect given the link between the histogram and backlight intensity I've got a starting point from which to develop understanding 🙂 Thanks a lot 🙂

I haven't done high key shots in years but they do have that studio look. Its great for special projects.

Douglas Chumba

The way Chelsea is looking at you on the second shots session is priceless! 😂


What baffles me is that many "experienced" or "expert" photographers either overlook, forget or are unknowledgeable about just that one key aspect, starting at 2:04, moving the subject away from the backdrop. It actually surprises us to see so may photos for the WWW to see, with subjects such as models standing within inches of a backdrop (when shadow effects were their intentions), which also results in poor images of a printed backdrop.

Oh, and yes, Chelsea IS a cutie but then guess there's no need to parrot the obvious 😉

How do I stop my slave flash from firing with the pre autofocus flash on my built-in flash on my Canon T7i

Francisco Contreras

Thank you both for the information, Chelsea thanks for your patience. used the technique last night with Sony a6000 and God-ox lol ad200 directly behind subject with two Cowboy Studio for constant lighting on the left and right side of subject.
