The NASA Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope celebrated its 10th anniversary during 2018.
One part of that was something called Fermi Fridays which was intended to be a look
at many aspects of the Fermi mission. I was asked to take photos of two models of Fermi, one a 6 foot wide model (made by the model shop at Goddard?) and the other a LEGO model, 33 inches wide, designed and built by Dr. David Green (at the time, a graduate student at NASA/Goddard.)
The first time one of the photos from this shoot was used was January 26, 2018:
Here is an iPhone setup shot panorama of the conference room where the shoot took place.
Two backdrops were used. This photo shows a mottled grey muslin (10x20 feet), although most of the shoot was done with a 53" wide roll of white paper was used (to make it easier to "knock out" the background), hanging from a background stand. Three studio lights were used:
a 24x32" softbox (camera right) as the main light
a 64" parabolic umbrella as the fill light
a light with a standard 80 degree reflector on a boom arm over the table (almost like a "hair light" except the models don't have hair!).
