The Jet Pack Pack
Flying for us today: The Rocketeer! Buzz Lightyear! Boba Fett! And Adam Strange!
Photo seen in Flickr Explore.
This photo was inspired by my most recent toy acquisition, the retro-styled Rocketeer!
The setup for this pack of flying aces was straight-forward.
The backdrop is a sheet wrapping paper with clouds printed on it fashioned to a piece of foam board. The four fly guys are standing on a sheet of wood made to resemble a hardwood floor. The entire scene rests on an elevated black shelf that I often use as a base.
Above the scene is a large circular diffuser that softens the ambient light in the room.
I use the “hardwood floor” in some of my Toy Story photos since Andy’s original room has that kind of flooring. I thought it might be fun to set the scene in Andy’s room, but afterwards I found I still preferred the more realistic clouds to the stylized ones.
These flyboys have also been spotted here:
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.
