Really nice shots, BHP !
Nice details (esp. #3), but the last one is my favorite ! :thumbup1:
Thanx so much.

Thank you for the compliment. As for the studio: it is very simple. Two strobes, a bit of foam core, some semi-opaque plastic, black velvet and a table. :eek:hmy:

Amazing shots!
Thank you thank you!

Most set ups for this type of photography are fairly straight forward, but I think a simple photo (even a phone cam shot) of your set up and some more detailed descriptions would be very beneficial. For example, what kind of strobes are you using? How do you trigger them? How about some of those backgrounds above (like the wet wood looking one)....what are you using?

I second that suggestion!

Here is the basic rundown of most everything I have to use:

As for the setup: there is no one setup. I change EVERYTHING around according to the shot and the type of light I want.

The ones of this watch (where it is wet) were shot outside by a rock, in some sand, on a 1/2 sheet baking tray with a hose running water over the whole thing.

I know it is not what you are looking for but I have no real setup. I just throw together what I need for the shot :001_smile:

Here is an image and a behind the scenes shot to go with it.




These were done before I had the two strobes but uses the same sand and baking tray.

It is all an illusion. :laugh:

Good set up! I would have thought that was taken at the beach!
Yep - had me fooled too. GREAT shot! Thanks so much for this information - very beneficial.

So that's foam core over top the stage providing the diffusion of the light from your flashes?

There is no foam core in this shot. It is all semitransparent plastic.

You just never know who you will see here. We need to do another GGT someday ... soon. :thumbup:

OK - that makes much more sense. :laugh:

Where do you get sheets of that stuff like what you have pictured?

BTW, the photo showing the flash on the flash guns is amazing in and of itself - you must have had a brief delay on your trigger?

The plastic came from Tap Plastics. For the BTS shot, there was no delay. The main flash (550EX) was triggered by wire and then triggered the 430EX via IR.
