Strobist one light

How did I do this?

One speed light set at low power. 1/32 power.

I put light under the bottles, about 2 feet below. I placed the bottles on plexiglass which was held up by my daughters chairs. Her table was behind to steer the light upward. I had foam reflectors on either side again to point the light up and reflect back to the edge of the bottles and I held one across the top as well. I had a black cloth for the background.

ISO 800~~1/100~~f6.3

I will try this again tomorrow. I will also use a different setup. Stay tuned.

Comments welcome

  1. Very well done!! If you hadn't described the shot I would have guessed 2 lights. Key light from below and fill light from above in the middle of a darkened room to prevent light from reflecting back from a distant wall.
