Glass Table Reflection Disagreement
5D Mark II
Canon EF 100mm f/2.8L IS USM Macro
1/160 sec at f/10
Alienbee B800 with shoot through umbrella with black back on left and right facing white background, positioned a little bit in front of me so the majority of the light is hitting the background, but enough to light me as well. Triggered with RadioPopper JrX on one of the strobes and optical on the other.
It was tricky to position the glass table where I wouldn't get my studio background and ceiling in the shot, like my paper rolls. They kept appearing in the shot so getting the camera just right was probably the trickiest part of this photo. Since I ended up using the 100mm lens (I started with the 16-35mm lens but the ceiling reflections weren't working at all), so the camera is really far away to get this shot.
