- One light in front of you that is diffused, about 30 degrees to one side (this minimizes shadows)

- One light in front of you that is more directional, this adds "highlights", it should be about 20 degrees on the opposite side of the 'fill' light.

- One light behind you pointing forward (helps separate you from the background). TIP: Keep this one high so you don't get a glare on the camera lens.

- One light (more if needed) on the background to prevent any shadows from the person

- TIP: To achieve a professional look what you want is very few shadows on the face, a highlight on the shoulder and hair (this comes from the backlight) and no shadows reflecting on the background.

- You may need to test different setups, adding and removing different lights, and possibly varying the distance between the subject and the background.

approximately 6' x 8'

"dye sublimation fabric"

NOTE: the further away you plan to sit the larger the background will need to be.

Image will be scaled when printed 1" = 1'

Original image should be at least 300 dpi. Better if it is 600 or 900.

We used Velcro option as a fastener. Hooks on back of canvas, soft side of Velcro on wall. Other options are also available from Magic Printing.

TIP: to fake added depth you can "blur" the background image before printing. This works great in smaller spaces.
