Day 43: Inevitability

This is no. 23 in the Fear Series. I did another introspective shot for today. I’m not sure if there is anyone out there who isn’t afraid of death and/or dying. If nothing else, the sense of non-existence has to at least ruffle your feathers.

Shot Specs:
0.8 sec @ f 5.6, 51mm, ISO 100, Canon 480EX II 1/32, Hytec LED desk lamp

How I did it: Today’s shot is much more processed than yesterday’s as it is a composite of two shots, one of me and one of a skull. I’m using my desklamp, again, and my strobe. This is actually a shot of a reflection of me, so I’m shooting into a mirror that is at a 45 degree angle to the wall. Camera right and past the mirror about a foot is my strobe, flush against the wall and pointed at the ceiling. Above my head is my desklamp, aimed straight onto my head. The lighting was the same for the skull shot. I just took a shot of it alone in the mirror, isolated it into its own layer, and superimposed it onto the shot of me. A little blending, a little brightening, some boosted blacks, and voila!
