Day 2 of 365 - "Toys. When you're not looking" project

"It's about time for this holiday crap to end".

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. 

Nikon D300 with Nikon 35mm f/1.8G AF-S DX prime lens.  Manual exposure mode, F2, 1/125th second shutter speed, ISO 200, spot metering. Camera mounted on tripod.  Shutter triggered with Nikon cable release. 


Main light - Nikon SB900 speedlight mounted on Flashpoint light stand.  Manual mode @ 1/64th power with large sized Rogue Flashbender with diffusion panel.   Positioned to the right of the camera in a classic 45/45 portrait position.  Triggered with PocketWizard Plus II on flash and PocketWizard Flex-TT5 on camera.
