Embossing Tool Setup

A familiar setup for subjects on a black glass/acrylic base, acrylic here as the amount of dust will indicate.

Main difference to my usual setup, is the addition of a white reflector above. This is a cheap white memo board which sometimes gets hung on the wall for scribbling notes on. Often described as a dry wipe board, which uses pens with water based inks that will just wipe off with a dry cloth.

This is just resting on top of a pair of tracing paper screens, through which the Neewer SF-01 mini slave flashes are fired. Both activated by Blazzeo SLT-4 radio triggers mounted on mini tripods. The flashes are shielded from the black backdrop which is approx 12inches/300mm behind by a couple of sheets of black card attached to the screens with clothes pegs.

Simple but effective :)
