Star Trek: Spock

Star Trek: Spock

Posted to Flickr on 03 June 2013. Included in my Portfolio.

Close-up of a Spock action figure from the 1993 Playmates line of classic Star Trek toys.

Photo submitted to the Flickr group Macro Mondays for the "TV Shows" theme.

Photo seen in Flickr Explore.



The scene is set on top of the elevated black shelf that I typically use for this sort of photo. Spock stands in front of a sheet of black glitter paper. Above him is mounted small LED flashlight that shines down onto a spot right behind his head. A second LED push-light is mounted inside of a clear plastic cup, also aimed at the spot behind Spock’s head. A third small LED flashlight shines from the left side across the glitter paper at an angle. A fourth unused flashlight prevents light from the third flashlight from shining directly onto Spock.

The camera is mounted on a Gorillapod, and the macro lens is held up by clear plastic cups.

Above the scene (and not shown in this photo) is a large circular diffuser.


Spock has also been seen here as well:

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.
