Got da blues!
I recently bought some Elinchrom D-Lite RX Ones, which are brilliant lights for people on a budget… or you need something with a bit less power. What I did find though, was that the lowest setting for the stand was too high for having a low level light pointing upwards. I looked a getting a shorter stand, but then had a much better idea. The Joby Gorillapod. It’s awesome. Not only does it do what I want, I also now have the Gorillapod for my camera!
This is my take on a lesson from the excellent Phlearn website. It is based on a poster for the film ‘Riddick’. I could probably have spent more time on the eyes, but it’s come out well.
Completed for “Games”, I had originally intended this to be black and white and then colour pop one of the counters. It never looked right though, so I left it in colour and I think it works really well. It took a while to do though as many adjustments were needed to account for the perspective. I nearly got it. I look at it now, and see some minor adjustments that could have been made.
