Let’s have a look on how I got my white backgound shots. Easy: two speedlights and a basic light setup:
One SB-900 as key-light shooting into the wall, a second SB-80 blasting the background. Both set to manual. Start setting the key and then add the background. The trick is to set the background to enough power to get a pure white background without ruining the image with a milky look. Balance is the key 🙂 Try it out and enjoy!
