Starfire vs. Starman Setup

Starfire vs. Starman Setup

Posted to Flickr on 12 December 2010. Part of the Setup series.

This is the setup photo for Starfire vs. Starman.

The backdrop is made of two glittery sheets of scrapbooking paper held in place with sticky notes. The "floor" is a sheet of clear acrylic.

Starfire is backlit with a single incandescent flashlight. Her hair is lit from behind by a second incandescent light mounted above her. Starman is backlit using push-LEDs.

The ambient lights in the room were significantly dimmed to increase the dramatic effect.

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.
