When your strobe arms are extended as far as they can go, you can cheat your strobes outward to reduce backscatter.
- [Speaker 1] All right, so by now you get the idea.…The more you move back, the more you have…to move your strobes outward away from your camera.…But at a certain point, you're going to extend…those arms that are holding the strobes…as far as they will go.…So what do you do at that point?…And the answer is, you feather those strobes,…by cheating them outward when…you're really far away.…And so here we are, looking at our last setup.…But let's say we decide to move back farther still.…- [Speaker 2] So at this point, we're getting…a convergence in front of the subject.…
And again, let's take a look at our…strobe-to-subject distance, and there we have it.…Our strobes are not as far away…as our subject is.…And you can see that backscatter's already…starting to creep up in front of our subjects.…But, we've extended those arms…as far as they'll go,…and we're still getting backscatter.…So what can we do?…Well, the next thing we can do…is we can feather our strobes.…And so what I mean by that, is angling them…out slightly to move that convergence point…
