Incredible Future Setup: Lighting

Incredible Future Setup: Lighting

Posted to Flickr on 07 November 2009. Part of the Setup series.

This is the lighting setup for my Incredible Future photo.

Setup Details

The figure is standing on raisin boxes stacked on an upside-down bowl. I love it that very often "raisin" boxes are "raising" up my figures.

A florescent desk light wrapped in an old t-shirt provides general lighting. Two small flashlights are aimed at the figure’s face for emphasis, one propped up on a rolled up towel and other wrapped in a paper towel and mounted on another cereal box.

My camera is mounted on a Gorillapod tripod, a relatively recent gift from my wife.

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.
