Gaffa. Forever.

A moebius loop of gaffa on white paper. Part of a lighting experiment whilst reading Light, Science and Magic. Setup.


Canon EOS350D EFS18-55(49mm), f/22 1/250sec ISO400. Handheld.


Lighting: SB28 (1/32, full zoom) from above through 1 metre cylindrical snoot. SB28 (1/64) to camera left, low through tall white paper, close. Paper reflector to the right of the loop. Very low ambient. Fired with Pocket Wizards. Setup shot here


Post: Small amount of cloning to get rid of dust blobs. Desaturated. Black level brought in very slightly. Very small amount of unsharp mask. Bordered 2px white, 30px black. All with Gimp/Linux.


The join in the gaffa runs down the left handside of the loop. There was a very small family of angles from which the join could not be seen. I love Gaffa.
