Justice Lords Superman vs. Bizarro Setup
This is the setup photo for Justice Lords Superman vs. Bizarro.
The backdrop is made of two sheets of slightly reflective scrapbooking paper held in place with sticky notes. Both figures stand on a sheet of clear acrylic.
The figures are lit with a single push-light on the left side of the camera. Each figure is backlit with an incandescent flashlight.
Above the scene a large circular diffuser softens the ambient light in the room. A dark strip of fabric is positioned above the scene to darken it a bit.

Superman is a superhero in comic books published by DC Comics. He was created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster and first appeared in Action Comics #1 (1938). Rocketed to Earth from the doomed planet Krypton, the baby Kal-El was raised in Smallville as Clark Kent. As he grew to maturity, he found himself possessed of amazing physical powers: faster than a speeding bullet, more powerful than a locomotive, and able to leap tall buildings in a single bound. To use his abilities in a never-ending battle for truth and justice as "Superman," he travelled to Metropolis and assumed the disguise of a mild-mannered reporter for The Daily Planet, a great metropolitan newspaper. His costume is red and blue with a cape and a distinctive "S" shield on his chest. He is often depicted as part of the Justice League superhero team along with Batman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, The Flash, and others. Superman was played by Christopher Reeve in a series of films beginning with Superman: The Movie (1978) and by Tom Welling in the television series Smallville (2001).
