Still pursuing my banjo ambitions, it’s now been roped into photo shoots in its spare time….
Canon EOS-1D Mark III
1/200 sec at f/20
- 580exII directly above the banjo shot through a partially collapsed umbrella (partially collapsed because I had to angle it staight down, and my light stand doesn’t do the beam-arm thing). 1/2 power.
- 580exII behind camera to the right with full CTO gel to warm up the wood on the right of the photo. Shot through a large diffuser. 1/2 power.
- Large white reflector below the camera, which un-clutters the reflection in the hand rest on the banjo (without this you see junk, books, tripod reflection and me-reflection).
