Fantastic Four (Image Reference: 20110104A-E00092)

I keep telling people that I’m not doing a 365 challenge. However a “4 Challenge” well I suppose that *IS* possible…. and I thought I’d better create a fantastic image to conclude my “4 Challenge”. So here it is the final image: 4/4 – The Fantastic Four!

Geeky stuff…. two off-camera flashes front camera left, and rear camera right. The rear flash has a blue gel on it. Each flash metered independently to f/11. A reference shot of all four figures in a line taken, then each figure photographed independently so that the lighting is the same across each figure. Using the reference image as a guide the four shots merged together in photoshop and “Fantastic Four” wording added underneath.

Settings: 1/125s, f/11, ISO 100. Lens: EF24-105mm f/4L IS USM @100 mm.
