"Oh great, the 'rescue party' is here..."
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 70-200mm F2.7 AFS VR-G lens @ 110mm. Manual exposure mode, F9, 1/160th second shutter speed, ISO 100, spot metering. Camera was tripod mounted and shutter triggered with Nikon infrared remote. The camera was positioned on the opposite side of the pond.
Alien Bees B800 studio strobe with 7" reflector, manual mode @ full power with flash mounted on light stand to the left of the subjects on the same side of the pond as they were. Flash triggered with PocketWizard Plus II radio transceivers.
