Shoes Shot

Trying to model a print commercial seen in the papers few months ago.

Taken after at 8pm in the void at my home, 23 Jan 2012.
- D200 with AF-S MICRO NIKKOR 105mm 1:2.8G ED
- SB600 + SB800, on CLS
- Nikon Capture NX 2

Not really a successful take with the boots, but surprisingly good with the more colourful shoes.
Applied about 10% sharpening at 10pt radius.

First few takes

Tried different feathering of the lights

Still not satisfied. Cannot get the contrast. This method don't work well with dark-coloured shoes.

My beige is surprisingly good

Same goes for this sport shoes.
Setup for the shot. Shot at ISO400 and 1/60s to black out the white walls. Self-made gobo attached to the flash heads to prevent spills onto the white wall too.
