The Setup of Humpty Dumpty Shot..
I love sharing.It is advantageous on both sides.You share your stuff and u get advices how to improvise.
So here goes:
1.DIY Softbox.(Hell its a pressure cooker box. :P)
White Butter Paper on the box for the soft effect.
2.White Foam Board below the eggs and pan.
3.The Pan ofcourse.I chose a deep pan instead of a flat one.You can then easily hide the mode on which the eggs are standing.
4.DIY Straw Grid.It was also fun making the grid.Putting a row of straws,keeping it straight and not moving and then building a honeycomb.
5.Aluminum Reflector.I placed this to reflect back some of the softbox light back on the eggs and the pan.It worked to an extent.
6.Dining Table.The entire setup was on this.
