Hi all. I'm looking for tips or a site that explains how to create this type of effect (image 959858 on ft, and in particular 5547354 on IS) Its the temperature (gells?) and precision (gobo?) of the light that has me. I just brought 2 studio lights and want to move away from the "sterile" & typical isolated on white look.

Cheers

the real name for this is cucoloris. Do a google search and look at the images. It will be clear how they work. You can make one by taking a 30x40 black card and cutting random holes in it. you can also gel the holes as you like. make the shadows soft by using a reflector on the head so the light is not a pin source, which can sometimes be distracting. don't forget to add fill light in the dark areas with the second head or a white bounce reflector. play around with it to get different effects.

The shot of the key looks to me more like a tracing paper screen from rear to front at, say, 45 with a hole or vertical strips cut towards the rear and a spotlight or relatively focused light directed from the rear. This explains the beam of light, the general filling of the shadows and the bright strip along the key top edge. With a black card cookie there's not a lot of fill if you rely on one spotlight.

I'm amazed that IS accepted clearly identifiable pictures of the FT as commercial images.

gobo/cuckoloris/cookie.

1) Just cut holes into some cardboard and put it between the light and the subject. Use some stand to hold the cardboard to easily fine-tune the light.
2) Put some gels on the flash, or warm up in RAW converter or photoshop.
3) Get images rejected because of "uneven lighting" or "wrong color temperature"  ::)
