Bokeh Squadron

#112/365 This is what I call Lego Star Wars {machel spence} style! So this was much harder than I thought it would be. I'll explain the setup. Waited till its dark...then hung up this lego Y-Wing over a bay window. Setup up a sb-800 with 2 blue gels in a 24x24 softbox outside of the window facing in. Then setup a sb-800 with a homemade snoot high camera left. Then tried a bunch of different thing to figure out how to get bokeh on the window..from spray bottle, to hose, to sprinklers. Also tried a handfull of lenses. In the end I used a zoom (yes I used a zoom!). It was the 70-200 f2.8. This was the result...whew! I had to clone out the fishing line and had to extend a little on the right side to get the composition I wanted. There you have it...It didn't help that is about 100 degrees either.
