The Machine (a photography background)

I built this set last year, but after I painted it a light grey, it was too bright behind the subject, so I repainted it recently a darker grey and I like it much better. Here is one shot of just it, and another with a senior in it.

Wow...I like this a lot! I bet the kids prefer this to the traditional background! Is that built out of wood or is there some steel in it? Is it fixed or can it be moved? You are quite the mechanic as well as photographer...great job!

Thanks! The gears and surrounding nuts are styrofoam, and are screwed to the wall. The "I" beams and truss are made out of plywood and can be moved around at will.

I've got about $600.00 in the whole enchilada, which isn't too bad considering the company that I "stole" this idea from wanted $10,000.00 for theirs (they went bankrupt!)

Yep the seniors are beginning to request it, so I know I'm onto something good.

The lighting you used makes me want to get my senior picture redone on something like this because the background is really interesting but doesn't take away from the person. Awesome

what ever happened to the 'laser' background...just kidding.

This is a good portrait, the kid himself has an industrial look to him, and I think the background fits perfectly.

Nice work.

Jimmy.

Benji, this makes a wonderful portrait! What a difference, I love how it just fades away into the dark. Very interesting.
