My apologies to the SC who has to look at 16 separate photos of me shirtless, without being completely covered by hands :)

Definitely had fun with this one. The setup and PP took a long time, including my wife's manicure, but the shooting took about a minute and 20 seconds. Just set my remote on 5-second intervals and shot away.

Thanks to my wife for donating her beautiful hands and, as usual, for humoring me to make a silly picture. She finds this photo quite creepy and won't share it on facebook, and I'd have to agree :)

Thanks for the great votes and comments, glad to be on the front page!

Ha! I submitted this to 1x, not even thinking it would get published, but here it is! Handy Man 1x

Red tie, red ribbon. I wonder what would have happened if you wore a blue tie? :D
This shot is awesome. Love the sense of humor you two have. Congrats on the red!

Definitely looks like a weird shirt in the thumb :)

Congrats on the matching ribbon to your wife's mani and your getup. This is just delightfully odd.

Thumb looks like you're wearing one of those sumo ham suits :-).

From the thumbnail it looks like you're wearing one of those sumo suits. This is really well done. You're really, really good with lighting. Congratulations.

Love it. Great for the challenge and well executed. Lighting of the hands and placement was well done and looks even throughout the photo.

AHHH! I LOVE THIS!! A little extra shadowing on some of the lower hands and arms (in my opinion) would make it flow just a little better! :) But otherwise stellar job and a GREAT idea!!
