16 — She Pours JD On Her Bacon

You probably don’t know this about Spadge, but sometimes she likes to pour Honey JD on her bacon. She’s quite an unconventional girl — and being an unconventional boy I love that.

I’ve had this studio/photobooth style lighting in mind since I got the Westcott Strip & Orb. I put the strip at the foot of my tripod, it’s shape means it can sit really low whilst still giving a nice wide soft light. I then put the MASSIVE Orb directly above, the softness of the Orb meant that I had some really nice even lighting without making the image look flat. Check the setup shot for a better idea of what I mean. Enjoy…

Setup Shot

You can see how the Westcott Orb & Strip were arranged on top of each other in this shot. Kinda hard to do a top-down lighting diagram when things are stacked. I put a mirror just to the left of the camera too, which made it much much easier for Spadge to get a sense of what I was capturing.
