“Say Cheese”, Studio photograph

This Lladró statue, designed by Francisco Catalá, was a gift from my parents and fits well with my photographic tendencies. It is also a great test piece for studio photography, so when I was looking to test flash technique this evening (in particular, soft lighting) it was immediately brought out. The statue is around 13" (33 cm) tall and highly varnished, so any direct flash would cause problematic highlights.

A full write-up on the technique I used to achieve this photo is now online at my website.
