American Maid vs. Supergirl Setup

American Maid vs. Supergirl Setup

Posted to Flickr on 15 June 2010. Part of the Setup series.

The setup for American Maid vs. Supergirl was pretty typical, except for the red jacket I used for the terrain. I wanted something that would obscure the black base Supergirl stands on.

The backdrop is blue posterboard. Small LEDs mounted on raisin boxes provided the halo effect. I gave the figures a little extra light with a battery-powered push-light I held above them. As is typical for me, a large diffuser was positioned above the entire scene (not shown).

Side note: This jacket is from my high school, whose colors were red and white. If you knew me in those days, you should recognize this jacket.

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.
