I haven't posted in a while, but I thought these were kinda fun and you might get a kick out of them: We JUST moved into a new home. The whole thing happened very quickly and we haven't had time to do Christmas cards this year, and since we only moved in 2 weeks ago we haven't sent our change of address notes either. So, this shoot was for our "Belated Merry Christmas & BTW we moved" cards.
I'm very excited that the new home offers some great studio space! We've got a library that is 15'x35' with 9' ceilings - a huge change over our last home with small spaces and 7'6" ceilings. It will make a great place to set up impromptu shoots.
My wife came up with the idea of doing something with growing pile of empty the empty boxes from unpacking and then the idea grew from there. I hope you like them!
These are all shot with a Tokina 11-16mm, 3' octobox boomed to the camera right and a gridded flash on a stand to the left to boost her shadow side. I should have put the gridded light nearly on axis - it caused some real problems with harsh shadows from the glasses (boy would a ring light have helped here). The octa was as close as I could get and keep it out of frame because I wanted to take advantage of inverse square and not light the boxes so that the lights would stand out.
