Tethering from above, with cake.
Breakdown of how we shot the "Let Them Eat Cake!" Shoot.
We are shooting Tethered from one of our Nikon D800's to a MacBook Air using a Tether Tools TetherPro SuperSpeed Cable on top of a Luxor TV Stand and the screen is just a cheap Dynex. Our Camera is being suspending on a C-Stand with Boom Arm using this adapter.
