Its amazing how many times you can take a photo and in your minds eye compose what the final processing will deliver. This certainly wasn’t my initial idea but I quite like it.
The setup for this shot was rather easy.Warhol Shot Setup
* choice was my 50mm f1.8 mkII.
* for stability during manual focus
* Vivitar 285 flash -1/16th power
* 2 White foam core boards for fill
* Table with black fabric draped over it
* Clear plastic board under Coke can
* Coke can (obvious I guess)
* Remote trigger
* Spray bottle
Camera was set to Manual with an of f3.2 and a of 1/400sec. I set the to manual and aimed for the sharpest focus on the words “Uplifting Refreshment”.
White foam core boards were used to bounce some of the back onto the can to define the sides of the can.
Flash was set at 1/16th power with a home made snoot and grid. Flash was hand held during the shoot for 2 reasons. The main reason being I don’t have a stand, and the other being I was wanting to try a few different angles.
was set so that the camera was slightly looking down at the can.
Can was placed on a clear plastic board and sprayed with a fine water mist. This will give the Coke can to a cool and refreshing look.
