I thought it would be fun to take a picture of what it would look like from inside the mouth to eat some corn. I used an artificial mouth called a dentoform and flash photography at the macro setting. I liked reflection of the light off the corn, the "saliva", and the gold caused by the flash as opposed to using a softer light. I made no post shot adjustments other than cropping and sharpening the image.

Wow, 56 commments. I didn't think I would stir so much emotion with this one! Thanks for all the great comments. This was a fun picture to take. The Corn wasn't very yellow after it was cooked so I had to soak it in yellow die over night to get it more interesting looking. The "Saliva" is sprayed on water. I had to bite into the corn before placing it into the dentoform in order to get realistic bite marks. The dentoform was mine from dental school. All the work you see is how we practiced and learned to do different procedures.

hahahaha...Tremendously creative and well done but where's the tongue???
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/19/2004 11:28:51 PM
Well, you get the prize for most creative... Nicely composed too... it's kinda gross, but that doesn't change the fact you've done something great. Congrats!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

It's definately a unique point of view, but it's also a rather unappealing picture that upon viewing I am not left wanting to view again.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/19/2004 08:09:32 PM
oh wow how gross! fits the topic though
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/19/2004 03:29:49 PM
you swallowed your camera?
Very cool picture, top score.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/19/2004 01:50:54 PM
Now that's original and certainly catchy! So the tongue caught, this time...
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/19/2004 12:36:39 PM
Don't dare to call this Deep Throat:-)
Original shot, indeed
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/19/2004 12:33:54 PM
Funny,9!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/19/2004 12:21:39 AM
Very interesting perspective. False teeth, or a person with a huge hole in their head
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/18/2004 10:49:51 PM
Thats cool. How did you do that?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/18/2004 12:01:29 PM
Interesting.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/18/2004 06:21:23 AM
Great idea. Have been trying to convince friends that you have used 'falsie's' in this shot but they don't believe me... I like the picture.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/17/2004 11:00:56 PM
Incredible Idea!!!
Totally disgusting, but Beautiful work!!! 10+
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/17/2004 10:17:54 PM
i hope you didn't swallow your camera? awesome perspective..
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/17/2004 04:32:45 PM
That's a great trick!!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/17/2004 02:40:21 PM
Great colors, wonderful symmetry....feel like I am watching something out of "Little shop of Horrors"...very well done....please tell how...so very cool...just a little gross but the detail and the colors more than make up for it.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/17/2004 12:15:27 PM
Funny and very good. HaHa
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/16/2004 11:42:12 PM
Wierd but satisfies the challenge.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/16/2004 09:13:36 PM
Great POV...but this image is a little disturbing
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/16/2004 03:15:14 PM
I\'ve gone through all the photos at least three times now. I expect this one to ribbon. And I'm looking forward to reading of your techniques. I\'m guessing a dentists model chomping down on real corn from behind with a little water sprayed. Great work.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/16/2004 02:09:38 PM
This may be a redundant theme or technique but i find it quite fascinating, so fascinating that I have trouble picturing the subject as being an actual mouth!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/16/2004 12:50:30 PM
How on earth did you take this photo?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/15/2004 11:58:34 PM
This is so ghastly, but a really interesting photo. I find it really hard to look at! 8
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/15/2004 09:52:36 PM
Wow. I may never eat corn again without thinking of this shot...
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/15/2004 05:52:56 PM
HA HA HA HA!!! Hilarious and original. Someone must have a big mouth to be holding a camera in it!! :-) Very cool photo!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/15/2004 05:28:13 PM
Wow! Really, really original--and weird! Well done.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/15/2004 04:25:05 PM
wow, gross. creative and well-composed and properly lit and gross.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/15/2004 11:52:50 AM
I can't figure out how you did this, unless you took someones teeth out or drilled a hole in the back of someones head. Although astheticaly this isn't pleasing, for your idea I give you a 10 ;)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/15/2004 10:23:13 AM
This is nasty. I had to laugh when I saw this though...very interesting, I would like to know how you accomplished this shot. nasty for real though...hahahahahahaha
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/15/2004 10:06:29 AM
That is an interesting point of view but it is not very pleasant to look at. 6
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/15/2004 09:39:14 AM
I have no idea how you did this. Absolutely intriguing (I'm probably overlooking the obvious.) Great composition and pattern. Good luck.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/15/2004 02:37:03 AM
It is really cool, did you put the camera in the mouth? Nice composition. Normally I do not like to look somebody’s teeth, but now it is interesting (so bad teeth) -10
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/15/2004 02:13:40 AM
LMAO, that is just bizzare! This may be the best challenge fit of all the pictures. It looks so real with the teeth biting into the corn. Great job. 9.

Amazing!!!

01/14/2004 09:30:52 PM
Funny. Gross. Intriguing. Clear. Original POV. 7.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/14/2004 07:52:12 PM
focus is excellent. subject is amazing
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/14/2004 07:16:35 PM
My! I must say that's an interesting point of view... but I must also say... "EWW!"
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/14/2004 06:03:54 PM
Imaginitive, very graphically detailed photo. I'm guessing this mouth is fake, but you did a good job of making it look... well used :-) While I can't imagine putting this anywhere that I'd have to look at it every day, it does fit the challenge well! 7.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/14/2004 12:34:22 PM
Yuck. Works much better when you can take them out, doesn't it? I tried an inside the mouth shot with a mirror. Never worked at all. Great color and DOF. Maybe needs a bit softer light to enhance the inside-the-mouth feel.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/14/2004 11:33:07 AM
WHOA!!! this is one of the coolest pictures I\'ve even seen! how did you do it??
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/14/2004 11:33:02 AM
Oh this is funny... and fits the challenge perfectly.
Those were dentures weren't they?

Now THAT's an interesting POV!!!!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/14/2004 10:05:41 AM
Okay. How was this photograph taken? Interesting
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/14/2004 09:47:42 AM
oh this is obviously a 10. the only way i think you could have done it is these must be fake teeth from a dentist office or something. i love it :)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/14/2004 09:34:16 AM
High marks for unique POV. Interesting color, crisp focus, (and a bit icky ;-) )
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/14/2004 09:06:30 AM
This is a dayum good and clever idea! It makes me want to cringe my face when I look at it. The quality of the pic is good, maybe a few harsh lighting spots but as for meeting the challenge it is one of the best here (9)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/14/2004 08:43:05 AM
This is the coolest idea I've seen so far on the Point of View challenge. Good lighting, good composition, love the crop - overall, excellent. I'd be surprised if this doesn't ribbon. :-)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/14/2004 07:20:37 AM
yuck!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/14/2004 06:26:33 AM
Ah! This is so gross but yet so cool. Are these fake like dentist teeth or something? If not I'd be very impressed, tiny little cameras :P Very good idea and really interesting
