Marimekko "Unikko" yardage
Marimekko "Sademetsa" yardage.
Today we converted the life drawing room into our photo "studio". After clearing out drawing chairs, tables, easels and chairs (so many chairs) I set up to shoot textiles. I was not prepared for 2 things; 1 actually having to clean the drawing room (don't they have some work study for me to abuse, use?) and 2 shooting large pieces of fabric without a large source of light. It took 2 softboxes, 2 lights strategically bouncing off the ceiling, 2 sheets of foamcore, a text to Maja and a frantic call to West Photo on how to change a modeling light for the Speedatron 202vf (I inherited these lights from the previous dude and have no clue about them. Note: push down and turn past the notch. Thanks guys!).
Out of the 20 or so we shot today these Marimekko pieces were my favorite.
