About Using a Cyc Wall

With You

Our cyclorama or “cyc wall” is a two walled cove background that creates the illusion of unlimited space by replacing the hard line of the horizon with a gentle curve. The cyc wall is painted a single color, in this case white, and has no corners; there is no reference point for depth, making it seem like there is no background at all. A white cyc wall is a useful background to get that infinite white void look (think the iconic Apple vs PC ad campaign) for interviews, still shoots, promotional video, EPK, fashion photography, music videos, commercials,  – any project where the subject takes center stage.  A white cyc wall can be lit as pure white or white shadows to give gray variations. ReKon Studio’s air conditioned, soundproof studio and convenient location make it one of the best cyc walls in Los Angeles, ideal for small, intimate, or high profile talent productions.

How to Shoot on a White Cyc

Intern Training

Shooting a clean, brilliant video on a white cyc is not difficult. Lighting the wall is just as important as lighting your subject in order to achieve the infinite white space look. Zack Arias’s video guide is a good place to get inspiration. Or check out The Beat’s blog with tips and video references. Scroll down for our quick tips on how to light and shoot on our white cyc cove.

Quick Tips on Shooting on a White Cyc Wall

  • Light the Cyc Wall with an even and spaced out spread.
  • Use soft light on your subject to avoid shadows.
  • Contrast on your subject is your friend – consider negative fill.
  • Avoid stepping on the white cyc floor. Use booties or furni pads to prevent footprints.
