Still playing with backlighting from my SB-600 speedlight through a white paper sheet, this time I used a kitchen skimmer as a gobo. No lighting from the front or sides to obtain only silhouettes.

Focal length 50mm
Aperture f/2,8
Shutter 1/125 sec.

Nikon D60
Nikkor AF 50mm f/1.8D
Nikon SB-600

Shot in manual mode, with manual focus. Processed in Lightroom 2.7 and Photoshop CS4.

    Love how techy you’ve become with your lighting!! (also glad the 600 is behaving itself now)

  • Thank you Vikram! This is all your fault; with all the beautiful inspiring still-life work you have uploaded over time! :-)

    Fabulous triptych Jo! Great to know about the lighting you used too, and I’m actually quite pleased that I know what a gobo is….LOL!

  • Thank you Ursula! I totally agree with you. It is so pleasant to understand the despcription without having to research the technique all the time. I’m only beginning to feel that way myself… :-)
