King Takes Knight

This photo was lit using a flash light.

 

I first shined it on the chess figures and then on the back wall to give it a gradient style of background ( sort of a vignetting affect). The same thing can be done using a flash with a snoot pointed at the wall behind the subjects.

 

Settings:

Canon EOS 40D, 70-200mm, 5 second exposure at f/22, ISO400.

 

I learn to light at Strobist.
