Scatterbrained, can you do me a favor and build a shot? for instance in the guitar shot, omit the snooted AB for a frame so we/I can see the difference or the effect of each light/reflector?

Great contributions, your creativity is astounding.

Hello there.
Long time reader, first time poster here :)
It's a great thread that have made me try a lot of new stuff with my camera.

Here it goes:
Me and a friend have a weekly photochallange, and this weeks subject was underwater.
Since I don't own any waterhouse for the camera as he do, I decided to go with a glass of water, and try something with that.
This is how I did it:

And this is the result:

The bubbles are made with the syringe, that I got from my dentist for cleaning my mouth after taking out a wisdom tooth.

It's not the best picture, but I'm happy with how the bubbles turned out.

Have you tried focus layers and stacking? That would seem to be a natural for that technique.


Couple of Canon bodies, a couple of Canon lens, few gadgets all stuffed in a bag...and a stick, and a tripod.

I have not, but you are spot on and it's next on my list. This was just having a little fun, hand-held; only the second time I've even tried the tubes. Next I want to break out the tripod and give focus stacking a go.

Unfortunately my version of Photoshop (CS5) doesn't work with 70D RAW files. I'll have to convert in LR5 and then stack the JPEGs. It's not ideal, but it's what I've got for now. I don't use PS enough to justify getting a new version.

These smoke shots have been done before, and done better, but I got inspired from previous posts in this thread and decided to give it a go. In a way it's easier than I thought but at the same time the results are very random. I'll have to try again but for the time being I'm airing out the incense fumes from my appartment, my eyes and lungs are irritated and it's probably not good at all for my allergies. :)

thanks for this setup, I tried to use it in the same way, here are some results:

Focus stacking will work fine with that setup, since the stacking is done with RGB layers, not with Raw files!

Thanks. It's, not something I normally do (keep the "build up" shots) but I'll try to keep it in mind the next time I put a mutli-light set-up together. If it would help I can walk you through what everything in the set up is doing, you just have to bear in mind that some of the things I do are more because of the space I'm working in or the equipment I'm using.
For example: In the guitar shot you were asking about, there is one softbox camera right. I had to remove the grid because it was reflecting in the guitar, but that had the side effect of causing light to spill out everywhere. I used the cards to flag the light off of the background, as well as the ones I had on the ground to keep it from lighting up the floor under the guitar. I had another black card over the front to narrow down the softbox to make it more like a stripbox (oddly I don't own any stripboxes). On camera left I have a snooted strobe lighting up the head of the guitar. The other snooted light is at a low power and the angle lets it skim across the background just behind the body of the guitar. You can see it's effect in the brightness of the background behind the upper left (camera left that is) of the guitar body. The Lastolite hilite I turned around and brought in close because I was getting reflections from the window and wall showing up in the right side of the guitar (camera left). Bringing that in close eliminated the reflections. The white cards help to create the highlight on the bottom of the guitar for a touch of separation from the background. If I had a larger space to shoot in I would be able to light the guitar and background separately without having to worry about spill, making the set up a bit less complicated. Working in a 14ftx14ft room tends to force some compromises.
