Credit where credit is due.. I was inspired by Disgruntledbaker1 with this shot..

Since I buy all my music online now, I don't have any recent CDs for this... everything here I had to dig out of storage in the basement.

Setting up this shot was fun, because Andy and I spent lots of time digging out CDs and organizing them... Now I just have to clean it up!

Lights: I used 3 lights. One to my right, near my elbow, shot into an umbrella. Second to my left, very high and halfway to subject, into umbrella. Third, hair light, bare light onto the hair. Reflections were a bugger....

    This is a great, well executed idea Gary. How long did this take to set up? Nice collection too.

  16. Gary Simmons 67 months ago | reply

    It probably only took an hour or so to actually setup, but that was increased by the constant "I forgot about these guys... Let's listen to it!"

  17. Lukas Wenger Photography 67 months ago | reply

    Haha, sounds like something I'd do.
