I'm just trying to figure out how to get a hi key, pure white background shot, but also have hard, defined shadows. I have attached a reference image and would love to get some suggestions on the lighting setup to achieve these results. My guess is, have the subject fairly close to the white seamless, have one hard light (Large reflector no diffusion) a fair distance away, above and pointing down at the subject. This will give me the defined shadows. I can then use 2 symmetrically placed, large diffused lights to fill in the shadows to taste and blow out the background. What would you guys do?
