Behind the scenes: flash setup for copper maille bracelet

Buy Add to Lightbox
A behind the scenes look at the lighting setup in my "studio" for the black-background picture of the copper european 8-in-1 maille project.  The project is hanging by a black thread from a stand, with the camera centered on it.  My Canon 580 exII flash is set to manual and hooked up to the camera with a Nikon SC-17 extension cable for off-camera triggering.  A Nikon SB-26 is set up on the shelf on the opposite side of the project, set to manual, and triggered using the optical slave mode.  Both flashes are snooted with super-fancy high-end printer-paper snoots (a white sheet on the inside, a dark sheet of cardstock on the outside).  My camera's cable release can be seen heading up to the shelf with the SB-26 on it.
