In this quick and simple tutorial we show you how to create a properly lit all black background.
In our infinite white video, we demonstrated how to create an all white backdrop. In this latest installment of our tutorial vids we’re using 4 fairly inexpensive CFL (compact fluorescent) lights. Each CFL Light has 5 bulbs and light output can be adjusted by turning off the individual bulbs within. Each head has a dedicated softbox and two layers of diffusion for flat even lighting. The lighting kit also comes with all the bulbs needed. These were from Amazon, but they can also be found via ebay here: CFL Lighting Kits + Softbox for Video Lightingall black background, back drop, How To, lighting, properly light, rim light
