Technical for above:

• Elinchrom ELC Pro HD 500 + Rotalux 39" octa for the key; power @ 2.3 (33Ws).
• Elinchrom ELC Pro HD 500 + Rotalux 24" x 31.5" + Rotagrid for the back/kick; power @ 3.3 (65Ws).
• Elinchrom ELC Pro HD 500 + frost deflector on the background; power @ 0.3 (7Ws).
• Seamless paper: Savage Super White

Background source detail:

The background strobe was mounted on a Matthews baby nail-on plate (attached to a 1/4-apple box). This was a quick set-up, so I just threw a 1.5-stop Westcott 39" x 39" scrim and a 24" x 36" China silk on top of the light to diffuse the source and knock down the level a bit. A 24" x 36" solid was placed in front of the source to control spill.

Heya,

Fooling around with a new toy, testing it's modern "relevance" today as a camera. It's an old Canon 10D with a 40 pancake on it. Super cheap ensemble.

Light:

Yongnuo 560 III
Trigger YN603c
24" softbox (generic)
Light stand (generic)
Cheap lighting basically.

Camera:

Canon 10D & Canon EF 40 F2.8 STM (1/180s, F2.8, ISO 100) with a 3 stop ND filter on the front to drop ambient light further.
Got this camera for $40. Cheap lens. Cheap Hoya filter. Dirty cheap setup.

Was just playing around with trying to achieve decent exposure at two different times. Before sunset while sky was still blue. After sunset while sky was starting to drop warmer.

Forgive the goofy subject, he's a dork. :)

Very best,

Super impressed Martin. A softbox for my speedlight is my next purchase and everything I do is on a budget. Any specifics on this particular softbox and do you recommend it now that you have it?

Heya,

It's the same old softbox I started out with, a cheap $30 Neewer 24" x 24". Has an inner lining. I did buy a different mount (it's a Bowen's mount with an internal speedlite S-bracket, by Godox, maybe $20?). The softbox came with it's own mount and it worked, but it was small and flimsy and gave very little control over angles. So that's all I changed. I've had it for over 2 years now, same one, still just like I bought it and I use it outside all the time. You can get them together now bundled for like $35 link (external link)) and that's the mount I'm talking about. It also takes an umbrella under the s-bracket space. So it will take virtually anything and you can mount softboxes both that just latch on (like this particular softbox) or softboxes or modifiers with bowen's mounts will fit this too, and of course, an umbrella. Does all of it. Cheap.

I'm still using it, so I can recommend it from a light and durability stand point, seems to be doing ok.

I have much bigger stuff (48" softbox octas, a 600ws strobe, etc) but sometimes I just want to take a light weight quick to setup thing, like a little foldable softbox, a speedlite, a single stand, and a camera and be good to go in 5 minutes kind of thing.

Very best,

Nice results, although they seem a little underexposed to me.

Sometimes I wish I still had my old 10D for nostalgic purposes, but I sold it back when it was still worth something decent.

This reminds me of how people make photorealistic drawings/paintings, but the opposite -- a photo that looks like a drawing/painting.

very cool still life, but it could do with a bit smaller aperture. The sphere doesn't seem to be in focus at all.

Scatterbrained never ceases to amaze us. 8-)

Thank You!:-D
If you're ever out here in the hi-desert feel free to stop by for a glass....or a bottle....or two. Really, there's not much else to do out here.

Some of your creepiest work, Scatterbrained. :eek:
