Chewbacca Portrait

    Prev Next

    Lego Chewie and a few unfortunate Lego stormtroopers. Another of my attempts to do portraits of very small starwars things.

    Shot with an optical cable mini spotlight.

    Strobist Info: SB-28 on 1/4 power out of sight, but with a metre of fibreoptic cable (Xbox 360 audio cable actually) attached to the flash head running up to illuminate Lego Chewie from directly above. The end of the cable was rubber banded to a gorillapod to keep it in place. Triggered with eBay remotes. The setup shot makes more sense

      Great pic. It's not wise to upset a Wookie. They've been know to rip people's arms out of their sockets. Obviously.

      I'm totally loving these Lego Star Wars portraits. My 6-year-old and I are huge fans of the video games and I get a kick out of how they portray Chewie as a cowardly dog.
