Say hello to Spike (aka "Butch" and "Killer") from the Tom & Jerry cartoon series.

This photo was taken at the request of my good buddy Cognimetrixx.


A couple of months ago my friend Cognimetrixx asked if I had any Tom & Jerry figures. I did not, so of course I immediately set out to acquire some. Cognimetrixx really wanted a photo of the bulldog Spike.


The setup for this photo was very, very simple.


The backdrop is the matte side of a curved sheet of white posterboard. It is held in place by a couple of binder clips and rests on an elevated black shelf that I often use as the base for my photos.

Above the scene is a large circular diffuser that softens the ambient light in the room. No other special lighting was needed.


Spike has also been spotted off his leash 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.
