    I haven't been photographing much lately, and figured it was time to capture some photons again. Since the weather is pretty bad, it's not much outside to photograph. I went out and got a couple of construction lights (500W each) with a stand. They were dirt cheap. Definitely not the best quality, but they should be just fine as photo equipment. :)

    I also made a small reflector with a sheet of paper with some tinfoil glued on one side, and some more paper on the other side to make a stand.

    Anyway, this is what I ended up with:

    It is more or less just a test of the setup, but so far, so good. I figured that experementing with different setups of light could be fun. :)

    Playing with light really is fun :)

    Some of the effects you can get with just a few simple lights are amazing.

    That Bishop really reminds me of a cartoon character, and it's driving me mad now. Anyone else get that, or just me?

    Well exposed shot that. Anything predominantly black is tricky.

    +1 :lol:

    nice shot, though somehow the reflections seem more realistic then the real thing... it's almost like a render somehow!
