Day 18 of 365 - "Toys. When you're not looking" project

"Getting 'Rick Rolled' at the eye doctor...".  Very few people will get the joke on this one, but oh well. 

Shot with the Nikon D7000 and Nikon 50mm F1.8 prime lens.  Manual exposure mode, F13, 1/50th second shutter speed, ISO 200, spot metering.  Lighting via one Alien Bees B800 studio strobe on an Avenger C-Stand shoot through a Westcott 50" Apollo softbox, manual mode @ 1/4(ish) power.  Flash was positioned over top of the table with the white seamless at a slight angle.  Flash triggered via PocketWizard Plus II radio triggers on strobe and camera.  Camera tripod mounted and shutter triggered with Nikon infrared remote.   

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 http://GreggObst.com
