Take the Money & Run

15 06 2010

Week Two brought the lovely Take the Money and Run into the studio. With a little extra time to prepare this time, I found a better location for this weeks shoot. The room was darkened (with blinds brought down) and then the lights were set up. The aperture was set to f/4 and the ISO was at it’s lowest at 200. This made the scene practically black-dark. The first light added was for detail. In retrospect, it probably could have been utilized better, but at the time it was cool.┬áBehind the guys is one SB-S00 firing wirelessly – you can see the detail it adds to the edge of the plaid shirt, there.

By now this was the scene:

The  second flash, another wirelessly remoted SB-600 was brought in camera left, behind a shoot-thru umbrella at about 1/4 power.

Lastly is the studio shot. Two flashes again – one on-board bouncing off the ceiling, the other under the table shooting against the wall to kill any shadows (created by the window behind me). The odd angle was an accident created… well I’m not sure what I pressed, but I likes it. Little bit different, eh?

Stay tuned for a link to the show itself featuring the interview!
