Toy Bike...

I promised my eldest boy I'd photograph his toy chopper motorcycle, when you make a promise to your kid or kids you've got to come through with the goods. What kind of a Dad would you be if you didn't? I really shouldn't have used a purple gel, should of just had a little bit of white light creeping in, but someone wanted purple... It was shot with two lights, one for the background and one overhead with a medium softbox. the rest of the lighting is done using silver-foil cards, you can get them at most craft stores and they're great for popping a bit of fill into small products, or toys.

So now he wants it on a black background, kids! The worse client you could ever have, they change their minds faster than a swift changes direction.
