Models of the original Ralph McQuarrie designs for the two robots featured in Star Wars.

Shot info:

Canon 30D c/w 35-350mm f3.5 lens at 135mm, mounted on a tripod.
Lit with ambient tungsten lights (kitchen) plus a Canon 580EX, triggered with Elinchrom Skyports,  to camera left, set at 1/32 power plus snooted and gridded to give red highlights on the figures.
Exposure – 3.2 secs at f16, 100 iso.

Some work done in both DPP and PS to clean up the background / dust on the sensor and increase the contrast and depth of the colours.
