Join Richard Harrington for an in-depth discussion in this video How do I shoot a pure white backdrop?, part of Video Gear: Lighting.
- Hey there, I'm Robert Carman. - And I'm Rich Harrington. - And welcome back to another week of Video Gear Weekly. And Rich, this week, we want to talk about white backgrounds and white backdrops. Now, when I think about the white background or white backdrop, I instantly go to, I don't know, things like Apple commercials and high end fashion photography. You know, reality is that white, by a lot of people, is seen as clean and fresh and you know, bright. And all of those adjectives I think, are really what white backgrounds are all about. - Yeah, the goal here is to keep things clean and simple.
Now, there's lots of different ways to pull this off and this week we're going to explore them. We're going to work with a paper backdrop we're going to go ahead and use a portable backdrop system, and then, we'll come back here into the studio and let you see the site behind us, so let's explore what you do, with a pure white backdrop.
