R2-D2 vs. RoboCop Setup

R2-D2 vs. RoboCop Setup

Posted to Flickr on 21 December 2010. Part of the Setup series.

This is the setup photo for R2-D2 vs. RoboCop.

The backdrop is made of sheets of scrapbooking paper held in place with sticky notes. R2-D2 stands on a sheet of clear acrylic, and RoboCop stands on a sheet of reflective scrapbooking paper.

The figures are both back-lit with push-LEDs mounted on clear plastic cups.

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