So I set off today continuing my blue background thingy, not that I only have a blue gel, but just it matched the prawns better then the orange or green I have. Anyhow the goal was get a nice picture of my prawn with an icy cold background, to emphasize on how fresh it was 🙂
I pointed 1 blue gelled strobe at the wall, and presented my subjects raised on a small table, hiding the flash behind it. I then added a small softbox left, and above, trying to shine light both from the back as well as some fill from the front, I then added a silver or gold reflector on the right to provide more fill.
I am sorry because as usual I was to pre-occupied to think of taking a set up shot, but the above should explain enough.
I shot most of these with my 100 mm F2.8 Canon lens, no CPL hense some flare can be seen.
And I used 2 Canon 430 EXii flashes, the one on the background I think was set at 1/4 power and the one from the left and above at 1/2, the gel used was normal gel from a stationary shop, no color balanced stuff or so. The camera used was a Canon 50D. Settings were roughly F13, 1/160th shutter at Iso 200.
I am quite pleased with the look of them, but please give me some comments and feedback as to what you dont like about these images.
