I’d seen a picture in an old film ‘All about photography’ type book and it was always in the back of my mind to have a crack at something similar. I would put if off, get distracted, convince myself I’d need some expensive lighting set up. etc. – the things that Michael reminds us of in his post. And I eventually got round to it, it came down to making do with what I had to hand – a single small hand flash, cardboard and patience – oh, and a exposure meter.
This is a single exposure, just some minor photoshop cleaning of bit’s of dust and a bit of sharpening.
