This is a bit more sophisticated experiment. In this case I used 1 SB600 with a short snoot which hole was reduced to a diameter of around 1cm (not perfectly circular though. The background is a red semi-gloss plastic and it was lighten with an SB600 positioned camera left behind the jaw. To make sure the light of the background was not spilling everywhere I put a black flag (a very tiny one though) between the light and the jaw. In Photoshp I adjusted the levels, painted perfectly black the foreground and sharpened the mage.

Wood Engraver's Bench and Tools
The bench has numerous drawers, the one on the left holds part of my collection of multiple line gravers. On the right are sharpening stones, a brass jig with type high sides, designed to hold in place blocks that are too small to engrave otherwise, and more tools. Other drawers hold drawing tools, and patterns, as well as endgrain blocks, both blank and engraved.
