This is a shot I set up using a new pair of Salomon tennis shoes. The idea was to have one of the shoes appear to be floating in mid-air. I had been using the orange backdrop in a previous shoot for a client and thought it would work well with the color of the shoes.
As can be seen from the image above, the one shoe was suspended in mid-air using a 30lb test braided line. Care was taken to make sure not to deform the shoe caused from it hanging from the two points. The line was then removed with Photoshop.
I chose to use a two light set up for this shot. I tried to do it with one light but wasn’t happy with the amount of light on the background.
If you have any questions, drop me a note below and I’ll do my best to answer them.
