More “Barn Junk”

"The Gas Can"

“The Gas Can”

I did this before…walking around in my barn and finding junk that I think would make for an interesting subject.  My wife and son went through the barn last Fall, loaded up the truck a few times and took a bunch of stuff to the junk yard, and yet there’s still more!  The idea is to take stuff, older, uglier stuff and try and create an interesting composition.  I found old paint cans, gas cans, aluminum cans to be re-cycled, wire, and some old weight-lifting equipment, although those kettlebells are more antiques than junk.  I arranged things, added some lighting, replaced the backgrounds, and touched things up in Photoshop in an effort to create “pretty, more interesting junk”.  I’m including a behind the scenes view of the lighting I used on all of these…an overhead soft light, a side light with a grid, and various reflectors for fill.  There’s even a little mirror there to add a bit of a kicker light.  Hope you like it!
