Sitting Ringside

Sitting Ringside

Posted to Flickr on 24 June 2013. Part of the Little Dudes series. Included in my Portfolio.

Documenting the little dudes who live in my home.

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


This photo was inspired by the Macro Mondays Flickr group’s weekly theme of “Wedding.”


The setup for this photo was relatively simple.


The backdrop is a sheet of twelve inch square black glitter paper. The couple, ho scale train figures, are sitting on my wedding ring, which I placed on top of a sheet of clear acrylic. The base of the entire scene is an old black shelf I frequently use for tabletop photography.

I shined a light at the bottom of the glitter paper behind the couple to produce the extreme bokeh effect.

Above the scene (and not shown here) is a large circular diffuser.


I toyed with the idea of a gold background, but ultimately I decided the black/blue provided more contrast.
