2017 Pair Go photo shoot

Hi ho friends.

It’s nearly time for the Seattle Go Center Annual Pair Go Tournament, and for the 5th year, my resin crew have been featured in a pair go-themed photo.

This is a fun photo shoot. I get to play with my dolls, professional lighting set-up, and scale.

The location is the Tatami Room at the Seattle Go Center.  The scroll at the back is human sized.  The dolls, board and laptop are roughly 3 feet in front of the wall with the screen.

The go board is doll-sized.  The laptop is a printable that I found somewhere (of course, I can’t find it now – I’ll post a revision when I find it).  I used the actual Alphago logo and merged the logo and laptop in The Gimp.  I also had to create the laptop screen.  I’m very pleased with the way the laptop turned out.  The soft lights bounces nicely off it and enhances the illusion that it is an actual screen.

I used my trusty Canon Rebel and all my lenses. To get this shot, I used a Canon 24 mm Macro lens. The final poster shot is still being finalized, but here is one of my favorite shots of the day:

Happy creating!
