I decided to do something a little different, take a photo of something Amy loves…Pluto! It was hard to keep my subject a secret from Amy as she came into the garage when I was almost done shooting and then kept coming in while I was editing the photo! Dang it, oh well, it’s done and she loves it! Enjoy…
Love the yellow and the reflection…Very effective…And thanks for sharing the technical info on this. That said, this photo just plain makes me smile!
Awww, I am super glad it made you smile! That in it’s self made me smile. 😀
Agree to all comments above! and I love yellow, too! Thanks for keeping us posted! 🙂
Glad you liked it and thank you for the comment! 🙂
Your set up was perfect. Glad you took the time and didn’t go with the flash. Cute figurine and the reflection is very cool.
Thank you very much, your comments are greatly appreciated! 😀
Lovely shot. I too like the feel that he’s floating.
Thank you Sasi.
Nice job here David. Very clean lines. Makes we want to pull out my ‘reflections setup’… 🙂
Thanx Wes and, you should pull out the reflections setup!!
Yes, I’m wondering about the background as well. I like the use of the yellow colour and, I really love the seamless nature of the image. Good work.
Thank you Nigel, I had a good time with the setup and shot! I love that I still have a good time…tis a good sign I think! 😛
Amazing capture of my favorit Disney character! Love the reflection. It looks like it’s floating. How did you achieve the background?
Thank you Emily! Pluto was sitting on a piece of Plexiglass which was sitting on a black piece of paper. The yellow was a reflection from a (yellow) foam board sitting behind them. Also used a small reflector (camera right) to provide some fill light. Was originally going to use a flash but ended up just using a longer exposure.
Glad you like it. 😀
Thanks for sharing the technique. Glad you didn’t use the flash. Cause I really like the overall effect with the long exposure. Great job! 😀
