Set up for stop motion imagesI put this in my journal today but figured others might like to know...Set up for stop motion images by Davenit
Ok, so lots have asked what my setups are like. I usually don't show them because, well, sometimes they are really horrible looking. Duct tape everywhere, fishing line strewn all over the place, flashes in every direction.
Lot's have asked how I do the drop shots. Like this one...
Well, it's really simple actually and doesn't need that much in the way of equipment. Well, I should say that it isn't that much relatively speaking compared to a 300mm F2.8 Canon lens.
Here's a breakdown:
Shooting Table: $200 (http://www.calumetphoto.com/item/SV0205/)
Flashes: Used - $300 ( you can get away with 2)
IR Trigger: $240
Glasses: In my career? Well that 300 f2.8 is looking pretty cheap now.
Clean up is the expensive part!!!
Paper Towels: $1.2 million
New Carpet: $2000
Set everything up and drop some glasses. Here's what my setup looks like for a real simple rig with 2 flashes.
