Video Game Addiction

I had to photograph and compose a photo illustration for a recent school assignment. I choose to illustrate people who stay up all night or day playing video games and looking kind of "zoned out".

I included some behind the scenes photos on how the image was made and how it was lit after the jump...

Started out with a B800 boomed over the subject inside of a octobox

I then set up a 2nd B800 camera left with a 20 degree grid pointed at the subjects face

Then added a 3rd B800 camera right with a 30 degree grid pointed at the subjects body to add a bit of fill light

I then photographed a clock to add into the photo to simulate time around the subject. For that I just photographed my clock than changed the hour up once, photographed, changed the hour up, photographed, etc......
