Photo Concept: "Evolution"

"Evolution" by jj casas | 5x15"
click to enlarge.

Last night, I went on a photoshoot spree and took pics of various things around the house and came up with something along the way.

This is a photo concept dedicated to my friend Pat, who's an independent filmmaker based in Los Angeles. It basically chronicles his path to a filmmaker starting with himself, then with a home video camcorder [that he shot home made movies with] and onto a video dolly [?] used professionally.

Entire piece is sized at 5x15".

Set Up Shots
The final product is clean... but remember, I'm doing this on a budget:
This is my "studio" set up:
- White poster board as background
- Giottos Rocket Blower [the thing shaped like a rocket] used to blow out the dust on Lego
- Sony a700 with Tamron 28-75mm mounted on Manfrotto tripod
- Alien Bees ABR800 with 32" Moon Unit attached as main lighting source; triggered wirelessly
- Metered with Minolta Auto Meter VF to set lights at f/11 to keep everything sharp as possible.

Yes.. that's Honey Bunches of Oats in the background...this is all done on my kitchen table after all.
