An Exercise in lighting and colour…whatcha think? I have a few more ideas with these pencils, hopefully they will pan out!
Strobist info: Canon 430 EX II shot on manual, 1/32 power using a homemade snoot’ish kinda deal! It’s a white foam squishy piece of material that can fold (pretty technical terms eh). I only wrapped it around the flash 1/2 way (trying to make the edges curve) so I could position it behind the focal point (causing the back end of the pencils to fade away). While playing around, I did find that I got a much better look if I angled the flash (so the top part is further away from the camera, the bottom closer to the tips of the pencils). Of course, the pencils were sitting on my black reflective Plexiglass (have I ever mentioned how much I love that Plexiglass?). Sure hope that made sense, it’s been a LONG day!
