I have no experience working with cyc backgrounds so would appreciate some tips and suggestions.
Set up is talent on white cyc bg. 1 wide shot (full body) and a tight shot.
I have access to what ever lights I would need within reason but have to make do with a non studio location.
Any suggestions for how best to:
a) Evenly light the bg and avoid shadows or seams.
Beauty light the talent in a cinematic way. Can I get away with a nice low key, sidey soft source with a 3:1 contrast ratio or will this look odd in practice over an evenly lit white bg?
Or is a soft top light the way to go?
c) What's the best poor mans cyc bg? Can a large silk do the job? Assume that under tension and with some C47's I could get a ground and backdrop.... Talent would probably be too close to the bg though...
Thanks in advance.
