Very different from what I imagined the set to be initially, but I’m not complaining 🙂
More images from my smugmug gallery.
Photographing this kit was a real challenge. The girls are facing different ways, so their faces could easily be in the shadows, especially Holiday (middle). After picking up some studio setup tips, I built a reflector board using crumbled aluminum foil, and it worked really great.
Another challenge is the depth of the kit. The kit is about 8″ in diameter, so it’s quite deep for a macro-like shot. Had to crank all the way up to f/22, which requires bright flash to compensate. I also couldn’t expose more than 1 second or else the modeling light (yellow tint) will show in the photos. Somehow everything worked out just ok at ISO 200.
