Here’s a really cool shot. If you’d like to know more about how the photographer caught this rather unique shot, just click on the photo to see the flickr page. If you’re interested in this kind of well-thought-out/planned shoots, consider spending some time over at Strobist. It’s a great blog giving insight on lighting solutions – in particular, cost effective light solutions. For instance, the photographer of the above photo used a homemade cardboard snoot as part of his “gear” in achieving the above effect. Be warned though, it can be addictive…
Shot info: Nikon D200; 50mm; f/13 at 1/200s and ISO 100. Click on the photo for more info on lighting.
