My Brush With Death
Heh. Fear not! I’m fine. It’s just a funny title.
Part of the Little Dudes series, documenting the little dudes who live in my home.
The setup for this photo was very simple.
I placed a sheet of black poster board on top of the elevated black shelf that I often use for tabletop photography. I kept the poster board from slipping with a couple of large binder clips on one end, and I curved the other end upwards to form the backdrop.
Above the scene (and not visible in the setup photo) is a large round diffuser. Only the ambient light from the normal room lighting was used.
In my initial attempts in taking this photo, I positioned the Grim Reaper closer to the center of the frame. Upon reflection, I thought he’d provide a little more balance if he was closer to the left edge.
Li’l Grim Reaper has also been spotted in these places:
- Blogging Is Overrated
- Business 2 Community
- FizX Entertainment
- Karen Woodward
- Life After Tampons
