Whatever, but the hair is always a terrible mess and a timewaster.  >:(

I get great isolation with only 3 lights... I built my studio based on this tutorial: http://www.zarias.com/?p=71

All 3 lights are 150ws at full power.



Example:

That's very well done. The use of gobo is often neglected. This is how you get those nice skin tone and the lovely clean separations, due to lack of light spill.
Congratulations. Love the skin tones of the model. Your strobe tubes must be well used to have gotten rid of the sickening blue tint that plague new studio lights before burning in. Well done.

Nice shot.

So what's the deal here? Too much light spill from the background? No gobos? Too close to the background?

Experts anyone?

You're all right.  You're way better off getting it right in the camera as much as possible.  The more you shoot stock, the more you realize how precious your time is to maintain a consistent workflow.  You can use levels or levels layers instead, but sometimes it doesn't achieve the same result.  It depends on the image exposure.  I've done tests with layers levels, and I found it didn't yield the same results as selectively dodging.

Thanks! I just set a custom white balance before the shoot and I'm all set. Plus, all 3 strobes are the same brand (el-cheapo $65 eBay), so that  helps with temperature differences, as well.
