E.T., the Extra-Terrestrial vs. Alien Setup

E.T., the Extra-Terrestrial vs. Alien Setup

Posted to Flickr on 08 December 2010. Part of the Setup series.

This is the setup photo for E.T., the Extra-Terrestrial vs. Alien.

The backdrop is made of a sheet of scrapbooking paper on the left and taped-together printouts (created from Toy Story 3 promotional material) on the right. The backdrop is held in place with sticky notes. E.T. stands on a sheet of scrapbooking paper and the Alien stands on a wooden platform.

Above the scene a large circular diffuser softens the ambient light in the room. A dark strip of fabric is positioned above the backdrop to darken it a bit. An additional strip of fabric covers the left side providing more darkness.

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.
