Day 12 of 365 - "Toys. When you're not looking" project

"Domo, master of rude interruptions..."  

Shot with the Nikon D7000 and Nikon 35mm F1.8 AFS prime lens.  Manual exposure mode, F4.5, 1/40th second shutter speed, ISO 100, spot metering.  Lighting via Yongnuo 560 II flash in manual mode @ 1/16th power in CheetahStand Qbox 24 softbox.  Flash triggered with Yongnuo RF-603 radio trigger on camera and on flash.  The softbox was flown about a foot in front of and over the camera position on an Avenger C-Stand with boom arm.  Camera tripod mounted and shutter triggered with Nikon infrared shutter release. 

In 2013, I'm doing a 365 shot a day project with the theme "Toys. When you're not looking". The idea is to capture familiar toys dealing with the situations and challenges that life throws at them in the real world, just like a human would.  You can follow the progress of the project on
