I usually have fun doing these shots...but this one was not fun! First the right arm of the glasses broke, then the "gap" kept moving around. I tried a bunch of differnt lighting setups, but liked this one the best...but man what a pain!

I made the glasses the day before out of 12 guage electrical wire. The circles are vent pipe clamps. They were aluminium and didn't really want to stick to the copper when soldered. The lenses are clear plastic from a file folder. The gap is electrical tape :-)

Fabulous glasses! I love the black background and the space. :D

I wish the crop were closer so I could enjoy it all more.
