Dark-Field Lighting 1

    Newer Older

    Strobist info: (also see graphic below in comments) the base is a piece of black opaque glass with a black foam core background. Light from a strobe is passing through a white diffuser (white sheet) and coming from the sides of the foam core on the left and right. Foam core gobos also on the left and right to let just a sliver of light on both sides. I was able to eliminate 99% of the front reflection, fixed a tiny bit in Photoshop.

      Nice shot Kyle. Is it possible to get the white definition across the top of the rim as well?

      I'm sure it's possible... knowing how would be the key to that. Just putting a bounce over top caused all sorts of undesired affects.

      *edit: I re-shot this one and was able to get some more light on the rim.

      Kyle, you aren't allowed in this class anymore. You make the rest of us look bad because you are just so damn good!
