Walking With Dinosaurs

For Practical Photography magazines DSLR skills 2012 Module 3 - Silhouettes.

I had a few ideas for outdoor shots, but with awful weather and the deadline looming these were not looking like possibilities. Looking round the house for inspiration I came across some toy dinosaurs and came up with this idea.

The grass is cut into paper and stuck to the front of a small table. The shadow is a dinosaur from a Hot Wheels Set.

Manually focused on the dinosaurs, exposure set maually and the flash is at 1/4 power, gelled with a Quality Street wrapper (toffee deluxe?), positioned to the left and triggered using Yongnuo RF 603's.

 

Perhaps should have positioned the light to make the lighting a bit more even, but it was a bit or a rushed shot.
