Dopey vs. Silent Bob Setup

Dopey vs. Silent Bob Setup

Posted to Flickr on 30 December 2010. Part of the Setup series.

This is the setup photo for Dopey vs. Silent Bob.

The backdrop is made of two sheets of scrapbooking paper held in place with sticky notes. Both figures stand on top of scrapbooking paper as well.

Note that to compensate for the difference in scale, Dopey is placed relatively near the lens. I also have an alternate shot in which Silent Bob is blurred in the background, but I decided I would stick to Duel 365 standards and keep both characters in focus.

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. A second strip of fabric darkens Dopey’s side even further.

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.
