My good buddy Dave - who doesn't even drink - doing a fantastic job as a depressed junkie getting his fix. Mainlining red wine, in his case...not even just drinking wine will suffice.

Setup is in my woodshed. Dave is sitting on a chair, and that actually is wine suspended in ther endertrac feeding tube system which I tried to make look like an IV. Flood up on the left side of the wall above him and SB-910 up on camera to illuminate his face and wine accoutrement.

He got some shots of me, too, but I'm too recognizable and my shots just weren't as convincing as his.

pp: shot RAW, crop, brightness/contrast, duplicate layer, add cooling filter, erase, minor cloning, dodge and burn, resize, sharpen, save for web

So many times I thought of doing that but with vodka or coffee (the latter one when I was a nursing student). Since you made me smile in a depression challenge gotta bump it :) I think I forgot to add that you did a really good job not only with the idea but also with how you presented it...
