Camera: Nikon D80

Location: the living room
Date: Jul 22, 2008
Aperture: f/13

Shot this last minute as all my other ideas stunk when I shot them.

Lit from behind my head to the right of the camera with some white posterboard to the left to reflect. Used a mounted flash towards the ceiling for some more light. Would've liked to be able to get rid of the shadow, but not much time and the ice was cold!

Brave model !
The idea is great an the photo is sober but technically excellent - just the needed simplicity that emphasizes the idea.
Good title as well

Your idea is very original, but the result is a little weird for me.

Awesome idea!!! Very well executed as well. :) The lighting is excellent and the angle of the head in just starting to look back is perfect. Great job! :D
