Lieutenant Commander Geordi La Forge vs. Cyclops Setup

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

This is the setup photo for Lieutenant Commander Geordi La Forge vs. Cyclops.

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

The figures are lit with only the ambient light of the room. Geordi is backlit with an incandescent flashlight. Cyclops is backlit with a push-LED mounted in a clear plastic cup.

Above the scene a large circular diffuser (not shown) softens the ambient light in the room. A dark strip of fabric (not shown) is positioned just above the backdrop to darken it 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.
