"The Bat-Man" vs. Padawan Anakin Skywalker Setup

"The Bat-Man" vs. Padawan Anakin Skywalker Setup

Posted to Flickr on 20 October 2010. Part of the Setup series.

This is the setup photo for "The Bat-Man" vs. Padawan Anakin Skywalker.

The backdrop is made of two sheets of somewhat reflective scrapbooking paper held in place with sticky notes. Both figures stand on their own slightly reflective sheet of scrapbooking paper as well.

The figures are lit with a single push-light to the right of the camera. The Bat-Man is backlit with two push-LEDs mounted in clear plastic cups. Anakin is backlit with a couple of small incandescent flashlights aimed at a small sticky note target behind him.

Above the scene a large circular diffuser softens the ambient light in the room. A dark strip of fabric is positioned just above The Bat-Man to darken his side a bit.

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.
