We wanted to have "warm" lighting to complement our motif. After wrestling with our lights for a few minuets we finally got the soft box lights NOT go off, so that we could use the 3200K modeling lamps to light each-other. Then we used our Smith Victor strobe to light the green back ground.
The strobe on the background was blowing out the green. So we used a few layers of white tissue paper and a rubber-band to give us the perfect diffusion! We set the aperture at 2.8 for a perfectly soft background, paired with very selective focus to keep our eyes sharp. The perfect combination of super techie, low budget and cute face creativity!
