My impromptou studio...

Unread postby Dusty » Fri Aug 27, 2010 8:14 pm

The company I work for is a small business to business marketing firm. Recently, we again won awards for marketing campaigns we created.

Since we had presented collages of the campaigns to the organization for judging, they wanted JPEGs of the same for projection at the ceremony. The task fell to me, (I have the good camera!).

I had to take the photos from straight above, as nothing was affixed to the board, and any angle gave the classic "V" shaped display. To do this I placed everything on the floor, got out the stepladder and - viola! - instant studio!

I climbed up the back, (another worker also on the back to counter balance me), flipped the 350's screen out and leaned over.

Shooting from straight overhead, the cap's logo can't be seen. I solved that by using my Minolta 28-105 as a stand under the bill. The wadded up paper server to give the cap some form.

It's a good set up, with neat solutions.
