Today I wanted to give a little behind the scenes peek at how my shots are set up. Typically, I use one of two setups, depending on what I am trying to accomplish. The first is the lightbox, which I have talked about before, but can be seen again below:

The second, and the one I tend to use most often, is the kitchen stovetop. Whenever I need minimal lighting or need to start a fire or use the smoke machine, I have to use the stove, due to it having a single lamp, being fireproof, and having the vent fan so the smoke doesn't get out of hand. Plus, having the sink nearby means that if things get out of hand and I end up burning the building down, I have water nearby.

As for today's setup, it's probably easier to just show you
