Day 22: Yeah, I Don’t Even Like Today’s Shot

I was going to title today’s shot as “epic fail,” but I didn’t think it would even live up to that hype. I don’t like it. I’m over it. I’m moving on. I found this mask in a thrift store. I thought he looked “scary” enough. My idea was to put a gelled strobe behind him and shoot it through his mouth to make him look like he was breathing fire or something menacing of the sort. I had my gels set up, even used two gels (orange + yellow) to make the color of the light more fierce. I had taken one or two test shots, this one included. Unfortunately, he was round and very heavy and I wasn’t finding a good way to sit him upright, so that he’d really pop into the frame. And then it happened: I dropped him. And he shattered.
