Laundry night. You're doing it wrong !
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
Shot with the Nikon D7000 and Nikon 28-70mm F2.8 AFS lens @ 28mm. Manual exposure mode, F9, 1/200th second shutter speed, ISO 100, spot metering. Camera was tripod mounted and shutter triggered with Nikon infrared remote.
Nikon SB900 Speedlight in manual mode @ 1/2 power shot through a 34" Westcott white satin shoot through umbrella positioned on a light stand to camera left. Flash triggered via a set of PocketWizard Plus II radio transceivers, one on the strobe and the other on the camera.
Fill light source:
Lastolite tri-grip reflector held to camera right to kick some light back onto the right side of the frame.
