The setup for this photo was relatively simple.
The backdrop is an old cookie sheet that I hope my wife never throws away, because it works great in the background of photos like this one. The gang are all standing on the old elevated black shelf that I typically use. Above the scene but not shown is a large circular diffuser. No special lighting was used, just the ambient light in the room.
One of the challenges was arranging the figures to minimize their height differences. I did this by placing the taller figures in the back and the shorter figures in the front.
This can-do repair team has also been called into action in these places:
Have you seen this photo somewhere else? Or are you using it yourself? I would love to hear from you! It's always fun to learn where my photos turn up.
