Chuck Brown. Cat lover.
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 50mm F1.8G prime lens. Manual exposure mode, F11, 1/50th second shutter speed, ISO 200, spot metering. Camera was tripod mounted and shutter triggered with Nikon infrared remote.
Main Light (On Chuck Brown):
Yungnuo YN560 II Speedlight in manual mode @ 1/16th power and flash head zoomed to 50mm. Shot through a large-sized Rogue Flashbender with the diffusion panel attached. Attached to light stand and positioned to camera right.
Background Light (On Hello Kitty):
Nikon SB900 Speedlight in manual mode @ 1/128th power with the flash head zoomed to 105mm and shot through an 8" HONL Speed Snoot. Flash was hand held.
