This is just a quick post to show the setup for this weeks SOOC52 project. If you're interested then read on, if not, then what are you doing reading a photoblog ??
Ok, so the brief was "Utensils" and the constraints were "Straight out of camera" So I thought I'd shoot some of our cutlery. Mainly because it's quite interesting shape wise, and when you're using them it feels like you have some sort of muscular malfunction. not great for eating, but a nice shape to play with light on. I placed them on a sheet of glass, which in turn was on top of some white craft foam to provide a seamless backdrop.
Set-up was fairly simple as you can see from the picture below. The Key light is the DIY softbox (Made from a cereal box, some tinfoil [Aluminum for my American buddies who like to spell things differently] and some white paper) Then I needed a second light source to provide a specular highlight to show the shape of the fork handles. This just needed to be a flash bounced off a white surface, and the nearest thing to hand was a box previously filled with beer :-)
So thats it really, quite simple, you can see the finished image Here (go on...take a look)
