The weather has been crappy, another typhoon is rolling in today, the third in the last month, and my light stand is broken and I can't find the ten dollar part anywhere in Korea.  So, I'm a bit down on the photography thing at the moment.  Last night though I decided to power through and start a home project.  I built a lightbox a couple of weeks ago and finally got around to full on using it, with both my strobe lights and both of my flashes.  I cut a bunch of new gels from some cellophane paper I found at an art store and I went to town recreating our wedding using our Dunny Cake toppers.  As always, here's 10 pictures and some foolish comments.

The Setup

Strobist DIY Lightbox Photography Flash
Here's how I set it up.  You can tell that professional quality is my main concern.  The lightbox is fifty percent paper towels.


Nothing better than peanut butter cookies when the rain won't let up.

Mario and Toad

Mario, meet Toad.  

Dunny Love

Custom Wedding Dunny Cake Topper
On the left is a blue gelled SB-800, at I want to say 1/4 power, and on the right is a red gelled strobe light.    I like that on the right it's red, on the left it's blue and in the middle it's purple.  

Celebrity Guest

Mario Custom Dunny Wedding
We had some special guests at the wedding.

The Ceremony

The Dunny's replaced my Grandpa as officiant with a grumpy-chain smoking-snowman.

You May Kiss the Bride

Awww, what a cute couple.

Presenting Mr. and Mrs. Dunny

"Who are all these people?"

That Light...

"Hey, what's tha--OH GOD!!!"


Yeah, not a happy ending for this crew.  I need to get outside.
