In the tutorial we planned to make the pumpkin the main subject with the mannequin behind out of focus. We lit both objects separately with two separate broncolor lights however we found that the light behind spilled too much light onto the backdrop and also the pumpkin at the front so we used two poly boards to separate the lights and also block light off the backdrop.
We also used another poly board to reflect light into the shadows of the objects so there wasn't too much difference in the light reading for highlights and shadows of the objects. (No more than 2/3 f stop difference between highlights and shadows)
