Brainy vs. Brain Setup
This is the setup photo for Brainy vs. Brain.
The backdrop is made of two sheets of scrapbooking paper held in place with sticky notes. The figures each stand on a sheet of scrapbooking paper. Brainy’s side has sand and a large leaf added, while Brain’s side has glass jars filled with colored water.
The figures are lit with a push-light positioned to the left of the camera.
Above the scene a large circular diffuser (not shown) softens the ambient light in the room. A dark strip of fabric (not shown) is positioned above the backdrop to darken it a bit.
