Ok!

Always wanted to shoot a Slinky - but couldn't find one here. Finally bought this one from London.

It was challenging to manage a new angle at this after Jenn, Susan and Carl's wonderful Slinky posts - but I hope I managed something interesting. Hope you like these.

Set Up

Here they are. Only found 2.

I use this bedside lamp from IKEA, and I just play around with it. In the first shot, it was placed under the slinky lol (to give extra light and shadows) and to reflect some direct light on the green backdrop. In other cases, it was places right against the slinky - but not with direct light onto the backdrop.

My favorite part of shooting these is that the minute you shift the light - or slinky, the whole shapes and lines of shadows change completely.

Good luck. Hope this helped.
