This was a photo I took for the 31st day of my 365 day photo project.
To get this effect I have two flashes pointed at the little mouse. The SB-600 is off to the left a couple feet away with a grid on it, and it’s set to 1/64 power to illuminate the mouse.
The menacing cat is provided by placing a cat sculpture three feet back and the SB-800 with a red gel is behind it pointed at the mouse, with the cat sculpture in between. The exposure is set so the ambient light is eliminated and just the shadows that I want are here.
