I had to photograph a paper bag for class, this is what I came up with.

I had the camera at the bottom of the stairs, the paper bag at the top, and a flash placed inside the bag. In the dark I set the camera off, went up the stairs, positioned myself and then used a remote to trigger the flash once. I'm faily happy with the result.

Thanks for any comments and or suggestions!

It's a cool effect. might it be worth trimming the shadow area off the bottom?

Very original! Did it take a lot of trips up the stairs to get this right?
