365 Project : Day 042

Another nail biter… 30 minutes before day 43 🙂

This idea came out of nowhere;  I wanted something simple to set up, something that can be done in 10 minutes or so.   This was done by holding the shoes and letting it fall on that green chair and while it’s on air, taking the shot and that’s how it came up.  Me and my trusty assistant made around 10 frames and this come out to my liking 🙂

And, no they are not my shoes.  My shoes will be horribly big and might bounced back and hit the camera lens… so I skipped it.  Safety first! Props to the shoe owner for letting me shoot it 🙂

Gear: Canon 7D + Tokina 11-16
Settings: f9.0 | 1/250 | ISO 200

Strobist info:
580EXII + Lumiquest Softbox III @ 1/4 power 105mm on Camera left
Trigger: Canon 7D’s built in Transmitter

  1. This is a great concept and execution of this image!

    Have you heard about the LumiQuest competition? You should definitely enter since you are using LumiQuest products. There’s a winner every month that receives 2 free products, and has their image entered for the 2011 “Who Uses LumiQuest” ad campaign. It’s free to enter, and you can enter as many images as you would like. Here’s the link to the entry page: http://www.flickr.com/groups/lumiquest/
