Ouija Board. For when you just can't find the Droids you're looking for...
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
Two shots composited together, one for the Stormtroopers and Ouija board and one for the Droids from the spirit world. Shot with the Nikon D7000 and Nikon 50mm F1.8G prime lens. Manual exposure mode, F9, 1/50th second shutter speed, ISO 100, spot metering. Camera was tripod mounted and shutter triggered with Nikon infrared remote.
Yungnuo YN560 II Speedlight in manual mode @ 1/16th power and flash head zoomed to 24mm. Shot through a Rogue Grid with a 1/2 cut CTO (Color Temperature Orange) gel for the shot of the Stormtroopers and Ouija board and 1/2 cut CTB (Color Temperature Blue) for the shot of the Droids. Flash attached to light stand with boom arm and positioned above and slightly in front of the Ouija board. Flash triggered with PocketWizard Plus II radio transceivers.
