I had this idea for awhile so I was excited to put it to use. Used three flash units (two on the sides, one in front) and a smoke machine to the right.

I felt the shot was missing something so we hung that light thats not really producing light from the ceiling.

----After Challenge----

first blue! thanks guys :)

as much work as this shot took to set up I think it was worth it. I posted the better shot (more editing) in my portfolio. thank you! made my night

02/19/2007 12:29:17 PM
This is hilarious! Too bad you couldn't get a real frog (that one looks plastic). Your lighting is superb.
02/19/2007 12:21:11 PM

that's scary. Sort of Johnny Depp in "Sleepy Hollow"-like, for some reason. Creative.
02/17/2007 09:36:19 AM
*lol* -
Very good movie-like lighting! Very creative idea! See you for a ribbon!? - Good luck!
02/16/2007 09:37:20 PM

Would have been funny if done more subtle. Pretty good image quality though (7)
02/14/2007 10:57:20 PM
HAHA! awesome!I would have prefered a real frog though, but the fact that he is disecting a plastic frog makes it even more goody. Great technical work too.

Love it! 10
02/14/2007 05:44:31 PM
Brilliant!!! Really funny, but a great photo technically as well! easy 10

Man, that is one twisted face.

Looks like things could get messy, better put those goggles down...
02/14/2007 04:14:29 PM
