His Noodly Appendages
MacroMondays 04/14/08: "Fake"
First of all... let the record show that these are not 'my' teeth.
All of mine are still in my head.
I was discussing my false teeth photo idea with my 8yo son and he
suggested that I add eyes to the shot. Not a bad idea kid - I like
the way he thinks. So we took a trip to the Wal Mart and this is all
we could find. While he and I were playing around with getting the
light right he suggested we put it in the glass too.... So credit for
the setup goes to the boy. Thanks Jack. After reviewing I cannot
shake the idea that this thing has an uncanny resemblance to the
"Flying Spaghetti Monster".
Strobist info: SB800 snooted from below in a box, the tumbler is
sitting on a piece of glass. Blue-gelled Sunpak 544 to camera left
with gobo to only light the black foamcore background. White
reflector directly above about 2 feet above the subject to catch the
upward light and define the top edge of the glass. Ebay trigger on
544 and SB800 on slave mode.
