Lights for Still Life and Cast Setups

Baffling
We use photographer's backdrop drape and matte black cinefoil to control the light

Casts
Plaster casts of historic sculptures are only suitable for study if they are high quality and have a flat white finish. Beware of low-quality copies and be sure you are buying high quality direct casts of originals. These are the only two vendors we recommend:
