Star of Wonder

    Newer Older

    My aunt and uncle received this handcrafted nativity set while missionaries in Ecuador.
    LIGHTING: Rather unsophisticated actually. Lit overhead with a 4-cell maglight flashlight thru a blue Cokin filter pointing directly down (note circular light pattern around stable). Hand held two additional flashlights above and behind camera right and left pointing into the stable to light faces of characters and minimize shadows. Star is an LED pen-light suspended on string with the bulb on the same plane as the front edge of the stable. Camera on tripod triggered with self-timer (my hands were busy holding flashlights!). Took several shots playing with exposure and white-balance...
