Photo 366 (255) "E-type."10/10/2012 - 2:07 PM
Still life's not my strong point and I have no real equipment or set-up with which to shoot it, so, once again, I've fallen back on the 'cheapskate studio,' flash, sunshine and a big window.
Shot taken manually, (RAW) the camera on a tripod, using mainly window light (the shadows are from a venetian blind) from the left and a hugely powerful hotshoe flash that I got very cheaply from a car boot sale, power turned right down, at 45° with a child's white sock over the end to act as a diffuser and bounced from a piece of hand held white card to reflect it downwards to blow out the background.
I converted it to mono using the 'Gorman' technique via the photoshop action that Tony Dudley was kind enough to pass on anyone that wanted it quite recently.
If anyone didn't get it and would like a copy, let me know and I'll email you one.
