After reading an article on Strobist I’ve been trying to match this photo by Peter Yang of Admiral Fallon for Esquire magazine.

Major Tom Major Tom II

Gobo’d a portion of my DIY shoebox softbox. I don’t have a boom stand so I had to use a normal stand and squeeze my lens in at the side. The light was positioned close and up. Seeing the image back now I should have gobo’d another portion of the topside so there was less light falling on his forehead. Peter yang had 15 minutes for his set up … I had less than 5. Seems like Major Tom had less patience than the Admiral. But thanks for being a good sport about it 🙂

having some more fun and experimenting with positioning the light to Tom’s left.
