Hello there, Im curious if anyone has some recommendations for lighting a backdrop in a studio setting? (I'm still learning a great deal so forgive me if I label something incorrectly!)
The set is a 10ft H x 20ft W room in which there are two windows on the far wall. I have looked into renting a backdrop from pacific studios and they have explained to me that this specific rental is a true translight backdrop which needs to be lit from behind. I can see how this would be beneficial as to provide a true luminance for the background.
However, my independent research has led me to examples such as the following image album:
These images seem to show a vinyl backdrop which is lit from the front.
My question here is, what methods are suitable for front lit vinyl backdrops and how does that compare to a back lit translight?
Would I use the same methods (I.E. Kinos from above) for the translight as the front lit vinyl?
Thanks very much for the suggestions! The project I am working on is a short film produced and funded by myself where I can decide how much budget to allocate to various lights etc. Thanks!
