I was trying to replicate a shot I faved the other day: Bed Time Stories. The wonderfully named Cassius Klay explained just how he’d done it, so I had a go. This is my second effort. I used two SB-600s – one in the book but without a yellow difuser this time, and one on the floor to light the cover, set on 1/16 and 1/10 respectively. I prefer the light on Appomattox’s face, but for some reason I couldn’t get the cover lit to my satisfaction. I tried three or four times, but he was getting bored and blinded, so I gave up in the end. Bless his little cotton socks!
