Still with me? Good! After the "Lean On Me" series, we take a quick break & change the setup. We bring in a small side table & slide it under the backdrop, and we finally delete that troublesome hair light. I also pull the main light back a bit & re-aim both the main & fill lights. As a result, more light falls on the backdrop -- you can see it better here.
Better tonality in the scans, huh? I think this is instructive to me. The difference here is that the main soft box is a bit further away from the model, and both the main & the fill lights are allowed to brush the backdrop. I'm liking these images.
At this point, I have exposed 10 rolls of film (10 exposures per roll). I have a Jobo film processor that is capable of developing 10 rolls at once, so for me, a batch is 10 rolls or less; exposing an 11th roll would mean a second batch of film processing, and I hate to process a short batch.
So, do we stop? No -- I remember my digital camera. Since the first 10 rolls went quickly (we had scheduled a 3 hour sitting, and so far we took less that 2.5 hours), we just switched cameras and continued.
(Looking at well lit color photographs is interesting, but I still prefer the B&W. How about you?)
