Fire Ball

By sitan1    
Was bored so I did a self portrait in our kitchen.
Lit with 3 Yongnuo 560IV flashguns.
The rim lights are 2 cheap collapsible softboxes with grids and cto gels.
The main light is a Pixapro collapsible beauty dish with grid, directly in front and above the camera.
Due to very very limited space, I actually blocked off access to the kettle which annoyed my family lol, I had to use the wide end of my Tamron 24-70 which has made my fingers look more sausagy than they actually are.
Oh yes no Photoshop here the basketball is actually on fire, I suppose that's great if you want to cook sausage fingers lol.

Creative and daring. A simple underwear vest and a sports trousers would have catapulted you in the NBA!

Thank you, the hardest thing was probably the limited space

Thank you and I did think of the vest etc but being the tight photographer I am I just bought the ball, in hindsight I wished I spent the money now and bought the vest, it may have taken the picture up to the next level Grin
