Dark Phoenix vs. "General" Trelane Setup

Dark Phoenix vs. "General" Trelane Setup

Posted to Flickr on 11 December 2010. Part of the Setup series.

This is the setup photo for Dark Phoenix vs. "General" Trelane.

The backdrop is made of two sheets of scrapbooking paper held in place with sticky notes. Dark Phoenix’s backdrop is glittery. The "floor" is a sheet of clear acrylic under Dark Phoenix and a sheet of scrapbooking paper under Trelane.

Dark Phoenix is back-lit with two push-LEDs mounted on various items. One push-LED shines light through a red plastic cup; the other shines light through a small sheet of clear red plastic.

Above the scene a large circular diffuser softens the ambient light in the room. A dark strip of fabric is positioned above the scene to darken it a bit. An additional strip further darkens Trelane’s scene.

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.
