Crazy Night Photos.

Once again, same model. I figure that this is a "poisonous" theme with the whole lights thing, so what better way to show poison then a cigarette. I really like the lighting that I was able to capture because it showed very select highlights on his face/shoulder. In a way this feels ironic to me because it's almost like he's looking at himself being poisoned because of the cigarette?

This is definitely my favorite of the three. I titled this one "2012" because everyone knows the story behind the end of the world in the year 2012. The reason why I chose to do this is because I believe that conspiracies like this are really fun to think about, and each person gets their own interpretation of it, so this is mine. I wanted to set this up to make it look like the lights were a plague poisoning him, so that's why he is wearing the mask.

This picture isn't quite as symbolic, but I tried using a different lighting method, and feel it was a very strong idea. I set my camera on the fireworks setting, with only a 5 second exposure (I think?) and just held a flash light on his face, which made a great focal point, but also added a really cool lighting effect to the rest of his body without being distracting.
