You're using a tripod in public. You MUST be a terrorist !
Shot with the Nikon D7000 and Nikon 35mm F1.8G prime lens. Manual exposure mode, F14, 1/40th second shutter speed, ISO 200, matrix metering. Camera was tripod mounted and shutter triggered with Nikon infrared remote.
Lighting via two Nikon SB900 Speedlights placed on a light stand on either side of the camera aimed at the subjects. The flash on the left was in a large sized Rogue Flashbender with diffusion panel and the flash on the right side was in a small sized Rogue Flashbender with diffusion panel. Each flash in manual mode @ 1/4 power with the flash head zoomed to 50mm inside the Flashbenders. Flashes triggered with PocketWizard Plus IIs radio transceivers.
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.
