Chris knows his Ninja Turtles. He can tell you who wore what colored eye mask and which weapon they each used, and on and on. Thus he would, as a grown man, have a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle shirt... and it's green! A few bands cut from a thrift shop kids red shirt find themselves placed in the proper spots and he was set for the shoot, Raphael style. We figured out an advantage to having a small studio with white walls. You can bounce light off any wall and get a pretty glowing light reflecting on the subject. This was a three light set up and we used the Canon 50mm 1.8 so we could keep the t-shirts close to the viewer.
Alice in Wonderland is one of my favorite movies. The toothy grin was a left over from another shoot and was an easy match to the shirt.
