Mario vs. Super Luigi Setup

Mario vs. Super Luigi Setup

Posted to Flickr on 27 November 2010. Part of the Setup series.

This is the setup photo for Mario vs. Super Luigi.

The backdrop is made of taped-together printouts of a screen capture of the first level of the original Super Mario Bros. The printouts are held in place with sticky notes.

The figures stand on a green posterboard. Mario is perched on a box of candy designed to look like a question mark block from the game.

Above the scene a large circular diffuser softens the ambient light in the room. A dark strip of fabric is positioned above the backdrop to darken it a bit.

This photo was taken in my kitchen using some pretty simple Gear. You might be surprised to discover how low-tech my "photography studio" really is.
