My July 2011 – July 2012, 366 day project. Check out my new blog now at www.robcartwrightphotoblog.wordpress.com
It’s funny where the question, “What the f**k am I going to shoot today?” can get you…
Did you P/S’ed this pal?
Nope, set it up (which took for-f-ing-ever, particularly positioning the bird lights [had to take them off our bookshelves first!] and hiding wires etc). I used two sheets of black card as a backdrop and a cd wallet as a base.
There’s a set-up shot here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/33790332@N05/6351183763/in/set-72157628019298977
I added bursts from my SB-900 at 1/32 over an 8s exposure at f/20.
Worked on saturation, split tones and curves in ACR and then square-cropped as it felt the most natural framing for the compostion.
Setting it up was a bit of a ball-ache to get a nice composition but I feel it did pay off in the end.
I love this. Just fantastic. Love the giant rabbit and his little friends. The lighting is wonderful. And just a hell of a lot of fun. Glad you went to so much work setting it up in real life vs. Photoshop. Really good stuff here.
Ha! Cheers Katie, appreciating the love for such a twisted shot!
Katie linked me this. That’s really cool. Excellent use of lighting 🙂 And of course toys which is a big win for me! 🙂
Thanks Cindy, very kind. Nice of Katie to share it too. It’s not exclusively toys – the guinea pigs are salt and pepper shakers, in keeping with my girlfriend’s obsession with them!
Also, thanks for linking to Cindy!
