I’ve just set up a simple bloggin video studio. A white background, two tungsten 500w lamps and a little flip hd video camera, which I know might not be the best, but I travel a lot.
Problem is I get a terrible flicker or warping look when the camera is on the lit white backdrop. It seems ok if I focus on a varied backdrop even with the lights on. I thought it was electrical interference at first, but even next to the lights as long as I don’t point it at the white backdrop it is OK.
How can I work around this?
It may not answer your question but D. Eric Franks has a fantastic tutorial on Lighting Infinite White.
