  1. Trying out 2 new softboxes, Elinchrom Deep octa 100cm and Elinchrom 130x50 strip softbox.


    Bg:Skylite panel (black fabric)
    Table:Ironboard with black nylon fabric with a glas sheet on it.

    Key:Camera right 100 cm Deep octa with deflector
    Fill:Above 130x50 cm strip sb
    BG:21cm reflector w.grid and a red gel.


    Im not sure i like the reflections, probebly would look alot better with a thick piece of wood instead of the black nylon/glas sheet.Will have to try that later this week.

    PP:resized,color correction/tweaks,vignette.

    C&C welcome.
  2. Nice work, Paul. You have captured a lot of detail in the garlics and the red pepper in the center. I have never tried using a softbox, but it looks like it would be difficult to get exactly the correct lighting to isolate the subject as you did. Thanks for sharing your work.
