Story: It's been a while since I added new still life work to my portfolio and I decided it was time to finally go shoot some still life. I was actually planning to shoot my custom ipad portfolio case but while I was planning that shot I saw this and immediately knew the shot I wanted to do.
Lighting: This is a very simple one light setup using a Dynalite 2040 head with the integrated reflector and no modifier. The light is camera right and just a bit above the camera position. I don't really get into post work in these descriptions, though you are welcome to ask, but I have to mention that while this is a very simple lighting scenario you shouldn't expect to get this out of the camera. I will say I did shoot against a blue background and I did get the shadow in camera.
