Gentlemen, Start Your Engines

Start your shaver and watch it closely. It will throw some of yesterday's stubbles back at you. For a few days I had this image in mind, and figured how to create this shot using just household items. Here it is.

Shot with slave flash, bigger one through a semitransparent Coroplast board, smaller one farther away and direct. Backdrop is the inner of a fleece jacket over the back of an office chair. This is the first shot, with shaver out of focus, but the most particles dusting out. Later shots had very few particles, maybe because I took the pictures upside down, shaver hanging from tripod and flash angled from below.
