Chewbacca Portrait

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 ..
