Vantage Guitar



I bought this guitar ~15 years ago while in college and taught myself to play. I don't really play it anymore and it is horribly out of tune. I'd really like to start playing again, I know my kids would love it.


I had a lot of fun playing with different lighting. For this shot I was using a DIY grid with a Rosco 1/2 Tough Plusgreen gel in a DIY gel holder. The grid was attached to the flash with a DIY strap and the gel holder attached to the grid.



- Opened RAW in Photoshop and adjusted curves, levels and de-saturated it a bit.


Camera: Nikon D90 | Nikkor 35mm(ƒ/1.8G) | ƒ/1.8 | ISO 200 | 1/200s


Strobist: LumoPro LP120 @ 1/32, DIY grid, Rosco #3315 gel, camera right, approx 3' from subject, triggered via Cactus v4's.
