video: episode 18, tabletop photography all done with mirrors


This is probably my favorite video yet, a dramatic tabletop shot created using just one light and a handful of mirrors and silver cards. I remember the first time I used mirrors, that was years ago and they are still my favorite tabletop light modifier.

The original series of images may be viewed in this gallery, they are darker and more dramatic than they appear in the video. YouTube has it’s advantages and disadvantages.

The strobe lighting used was, once again, Calumet Photographic’s Genesis 200 1-Light Kit. I’ve certainly gotten my $170 worth out of the kit.
