TMNT Sketches with Jesse Feyereisen

"After last week’s high energy shot, I thought I’d slow it down this round with something calm and quiet. A bit of an homage to the 1990 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (TMNT) movie when April O’Neil drew a few sketches of the turtles as they were all bunkering down at her old childhood farmhouse."

"It was a very minimal setup featuring a few little prop sketches (about the size of a postage stamp) and a pencil that was included with a NECA April O’Neil figure. I placed all of the props on a small wooden table and chair setup from @extremesets and then I used a cardboard printed wall piece (from another set kit) as the wood floor. I lit the scene using a single AD200 in a small strip box and sprayed just a bit of water mist in the air to simulate a bit of dust in the air."

"In post, I used Adobe Lightroom Classic for some basic RAW processing and color grade. A very simple setup, for a clean and quiet photo."
