The Repair Shop II

By chase
A little less cluttered and this time a job for the book restorer, the camera fixer and the clockmaker perhaps.

A 3 frame HDR image, combined in Lightroom, finished with minimal faffing in Photoshop.
Lit by window light against a lump of black material on a dress stand.

My fave bit is the light hitting the camera, a Kodo Number 2 folding Hawk Eye, Model C.

Thanks for getting this far.
Constructive critique and mods welcome.

You have so much fun creating these set ups. And we sure enjoy seeing them. Always so perfectly composed and lit in all the right places.

Is the clock mechanism the self-timer works for the camera?Wink
Presumably the thick tomes are the camera instruction manuals, in 72 languages...

I reckon this really tool a much slower shutter speed than the EXIF suggests. It has to be a time exposure...

This is really well set up and although you make it look easy - it certainly isn't!

Hi Phil, thank you so much for your UA, really appreciated.

Malc, I tried to get the clock bits to control the timer...failed Wink Took me a while to read through those instruction books, 93 different languages Wink

Nope, exif is as it was John, 3 exposures...0.4, 0.8 and 1/5th. The light was pretty full on and I needed to keep the blacks on the bg. Moved the bg into a little shade away from the main subjects. It's probably about 2 feet away from the subjects.

Sorry, Janet. Unreconstructed sense of humour. Clock, time exposure... No?

It didn't take so long - it would have been quicker if your clock was a ticker...
