To continue my series Killing It With Hardware, I present my latest tabletop result:

IMAGE: http://patternassociates.com/rico/contax/misc/breguet2.jpg

Setup is heavy on support and modifiers, but uses only one light. Back view:

IMAGE: http://patternassociates.com/rico/fm/breguet2b.jpg

Stands left-to-right: 2x3 diffusion panel suspended horizontally, foamcore, more formcore, Profoto StripLight S on D650 junior boom. Front view:

IMAGE: http://patternassociates.com/rico/fm/breguet2c.jpg

Subject is secured on black silk velvet (a truly amazing material for dark-field), and shot with 200mm bellows lens @ f/32. This shoot was a time-consuming exercise in "family of angles" from That Book. I also had to determine distances and materials of modifiers to balance the softness of light. I usually prefer harder light, but the fashion for watches is the soft, glowy treatment—the better to hide all those expensive scratches!

As noted by Phil (my fellow junkie), these are Matthews roller stands from the "Hollywood" line. Salient features are all-steel risers, lockable wheels, low leg profile, self-standing when folded and, yes, sturdy. The boomed assembly weighs 90 lbs and I can move it with a finger. That stand (full name Low Boy Junior Double Riser Roller) is my most useful. The taller one is the Medium Overhead and has a big footprint. The others are small-footprint (Baby Jr Double Riser) and good for modifiers: I set up the panel and then rolled it under the light. So easy! With a light load, I even use these stands folded up:

Thanks for the info. Looks like a fun project while we wait for better outdoor weather.

In front of the black b/g are five stands. From left, (1) special diffuser on grip arm, (2) black stand serving as subject pedestal, (3) two reflectors, (4) Speedlite on doubled grip arm, (5) Profoto head as hard key. I'm still experimenting with the special diffuser, which is a gobo holder fit with three sheets of Rosco Tough Rolux. Closeup:

The generated shadow transition is perfect, and I really like the circular profile when reflected.

Rico, what size is that gobo holder (external link)? I tried to light up a lens with a snoot and black foil with a circle cutout and diffusion and got unsatisfactory results:

The diameter is 8cm, standard for a steel gobo in continuous lighting fixtures. Being generally convex, a lens will need the largest diameter of light modifier you can manage, and as close as possible, to get a good-sized reflection. I have a 14" circular reflector of white cardboard to test: it came from a frozen pizza box, so quite economical. :)
