Grandfather's Ashtray

This was one of my Grandfather's pipe ashtrays that bookended his couch in the basement of his Ottawa home. My cousin grabbed the other one (which was even cooler - made from a big WWII shell casing).

 

Strobist: Three lights:

- 580EXII through 28" softbox, camera left, slightly above and angled down

- 580EXII into white reflector flush with the table camera right

- 430EX through Honl grid from behind, upper right (this is giving the rim light on the handle on top).

- fired with PW+IIs

 

That's black velvet on the table and behind the subject.
