Equipment and Information for studio photo shoot

I selected five images that I felt represented specific allergies. I took these photographs in a studio in Huddersfield.

I used a Canon 5D Mark III camera, a Canon 70-200 f28 lens and a light trigger.

The lighting was created by a Bowens single flash head with a basic reflector dish placed on a high 45 degrees angle, approximately 5m away from the subject. This lighting created a hard, sharp shadow.

I made the decision to use a white paper backdrop for numerous reasons. Firstly, by choosing a similar colour backdrop to the subject of the skull, created more emphasis on the food surrounding the skull. Secondly, I was able to easily create an infinity curve.

The food and skull were placed on top of a level surface. The infinity curve was created by attaching the roll to a clothing rail, allowing new sheets of paper to be cut off and replaced with fresh, clean paper.
