This picture was made for the Strobist Boot Camp II: Assignment#2. I created it in two parts.
Part one was exposing the can itself and part two was creating the swish behind it. The can was exposed by light from an SB600 at its lowest setting, very close to the can camera left. The light is diffused by the use of a piece of kitchen towel. Light is reflected back onto the can camera right by use of a folded piece of paper. The first few images were made on the table top which I didn't like much. A black box was used to change the background and the surface black.
Part two was creating the swish. The exposure was set to two and a half seconds to allow enough time to create the swish. The light to create the swish is from the lit screen of my mobile phone. It took me around 70 attempts to create the look I was looking for.
PP - desaturated and dodged the swish to bring out the whites.

Nadine at the London Strobist meetup - the theme was Film Noir.
Strobist - gridded SB800 camera right pointing at models' face.
Snooted Sb600 (?) pointing at the feet. Fired with CLS on TTL.
Also, lots of ambient high camera right. The picture was made under a railway arch - lots of ambient light camera right, almost no ambient light camera left.
Same lighting as this photo.
On camera SB24 bounced off ceiling at 1/2 power. Off camera SB26 at camera right at 1/8 power bounced off side wall.
This was taken at the London strobist meet on 22 Feb 09 at the pub before we went out to the location
JW joined us (all the way from Alaska) at the London Strobist social on 11 March 09.
Gareth brought his Rayflash ring flash adopter, so we decided to take some test shots. The camera was lent by Huy .

Quick photo taken after work yesterday. This was taken in 15 minutes start to finish. I had some work colleagues assisting.
Strobist - Bare SB24 camera left at 1/4 power, snooted SB26 camera right pointing at face.
It would have been good to get the building behind but it was raining and I could not experiment more.

Snooted sb24 camera left for lighting face. Another flash (camera left as well to light the front wheel. Flash camera right to light Paulo's back. CTB flash under the forklift. CTO'd flash behind Paulo pointing at cieling.
Sorry don't remember the settings on the flashes as this was a collective lighting effort with Huy, Gareth, Paulo and myself.
Oh and Huy behind Paulo with 'smoke in a can'
