Small's Shoe "Nike"

Small's Shoe "nike" by usuqa, on Flickr

It was Small Paul's first birthday the other day and my brother got him a little pair of nike's.
I figured they would make a nice little subject to shoot.

I used my old pentax 85mm f2 with a macro ring along with the sensor shift on my k5 to get this shot.


A softbox overhead and a gridded strobe onto the back wall.
Around the front of the show was a reflector to the left, one to the front right.. I had another reflector coming from the softbox down towards the camera and another under the shoe to bounce some light back up.

There was no direct light pointing at the shoe.. only white reflectors/cards.
