Bruce Wayne vs. Indiana Jones Setup

Bruce Wayne vs. Indiana Jones Setup

Posted to Flickr on 24 August 2010. Part of the Setup series.

This is the setup photo for Bruce Wayne vs. Indiana Jones.

Two pieces of scrapbooking paper form the backdrop. The blue-grey paper behind Bruce Wayne is textured and slightly reflective, while the brown paper behind Indiana Jones is not. Both sheets of paper are attached to foamboard with sticky notes.

Bruce is standing on another blue-grey piece of scrapbooking paper with a slight different texture than his backdrop. Indiana is stands on another brown piece of scrapbooking paper with a slightly different print than the one behind him.

The figures are front lit with a single push-light on a clear plastic cup. Bruce is backlit with a single push-LED in a clear plastic cup and lit from above by a second push-LED. Indiana is backlit with a cheap incandescent flashlight held up by clear plastic cups.

Above the entire scene a large circular diffuser softens the ambient light in the room. A piece of dark fabric is positioned above Bruce’s backdrop to darken it.
