A New Hope

Dual meaning in this title.

1. My light box came today so I have "a new hope" for a solid consistent light source.
2. Star Wars: A New Hope (ANH for the geeks) was the subject of tonight's image. Real geeks don't need this link, but for everyone one else that is not sure what a X-Wing is click here.

The light box was used as the background as well as the primary light source. I also used my 550EX (on camera) bounced directly overhead for some front fill and hand held the 420EX (with snoot) off to the right side to cast a very slight shadow. The rest of the room was in total darkness. Here is a link to where I purchased my light box

This is a X-Wing Fighter made of scrap metals from the rail road industry. I got this at a craft fair in Roanoke, VA from a artist who was a former welder for Norfolk & Southern Railroad and science fiction fan.

I had some alternates for tonight's image that can be found here

Very clever. I recognized this from the thumbnail, both as a child of first movies and because my 5 year old son is now obsessed with the original "Star Wars", flying his plastic X-wing fighter all over the house.
