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.

      Cool concept. Well executed. Love the reflections.
