Mini-Me vs. Minnie Mouse Setup

Mini-Me vs. Minnie Mouse Setup

Posted to Flickr on 23 December 2010. Part of the Setup series.

This is the setup photo for Mini-Me vs. Minnie Mouse.

The backdrop is made of two sheets of scrapbooking paper held in place with sticky notes. Mini-Me’s "floor" is a silver sheet of scrapbooking paper with a sheet of clear acrylic on top. Minnie’s "floor" is a pink blanket on temporary loan from my daughter.

The figures are lit with push-lights on either side of the camera. Minnie is back-lit with a single incandescent flashlight.

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.

Have you seen this photo somewhere else? Or are you using it yourself? I would love to hear from you! It's always fun to learn where my photos turn up.


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.
