Booster Gold, Racer X, Cyclops, and Geordi La Forge have a future so bright, they gotta wear … visors.

Photo seen in Flickr Explore.


I’ve wanted to revisit characters with visors ever since I teamed up Racer X and Cyclops back in my Duel 365 project from 2010.


The setup for this photo was very simple.


The backdrop is a gold-colored piece of glitter paper. A colored LED light provides the backlighting of yellow. A modified toilet paper tube serves to direct the light to the backdrop and away from the figures.

Above the scene is a large circular diffuser that softens the ambient light in the room.


I tried adding a little color to the background for variety, but I decided I liked the “pure” gold tones better.



These visor-loving guys have also been seen here:

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.
