Lunch Atop a Skyscraper

A lego reconstruction of the famous 1932 photograph "Lunch atop a skyscraper" taken by Charles Ebbets

 

Original : en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Lunch-atop-a-skyscraper-c1932.jpg

 

Lighting Info: The main light was a Nikon SB-28 on 1/64 power mounted on a lightstand in a shoot through brolly about 2 feet to camera left positioned slightly above the workers.

 

The background was lit with an SB-24 on 1/16 power with a piece of white sheet over it to being the power down even more.

 

The idea was to get an outdoor look to the light, which meant a big soft lightsource. The umbrella is about as close as it can be without blowing out the scene at f2.8.
