Just figured out a new way to light people

Just two lights without reflectors set at 180 degrees to each other, and almost no post-processing is required.

    Nice. Doesn’t look like point sources – soft boxes?

    180 degrees where? The fanny pack looks to be in relative shadow, so unless the right light is brighter, lights at 3 o’clock and 9 o’clock doesn’t seem to fit. Maybe one light at 4 o’clock and one at 10?

    I like the effect. Gonna have to try it.

    Seemless white background? And what was your f-stop set to?

      Somewhat crinkled seamless paper, f14. I find that 50MP camera requires about a stop smaller aperture than 21MP for a similar level of detail at 1:1 review (since the effective magnification is greater).
