I'm revamping my studio lighting a bit so I bought a used set of Paul C. Buff Einsteins this week. So far I'm liking them! Despite feeling like they are made of the same material as my old Tobor robot toy from the 1970s they are, functionally, quite good. Of course both umbrella holds have long-since broken off and the cases cracked but that's not really surprising because... well... they are made of the same material as my old Tobor robot from the 1970's. Although Tobor still hasn't broken yet so maybe it's not actually the same material.
But that's not why I'm posting. I bought the lights from a local product photographer named Elijah Hoffman. I checked out his portfolio and among his excellent work was this awesome product image.
That's not why I'm posting either. Did you see what the label says? Method is making bottles out of recovered ocean plastic!?!? That's awesome!!! I always wondered when we might reach a point where it's actually economically viable to "mine" our own garbage. Maybe we are approaching that point?
Anyway, random thought.
PS, Again, this image is NOT mine, it's the work of the talented and apparently un-taggable Elijah Hoffman. You can see more of his work here.
