Single exposure, honest. Not easy though, I had to keep my body roughly in the same position, whilst frantically changing glassess. Set the camera on Manual exposure, 25 secs at f9, outside on the balcony in the dark, and got my dear wife to "flash" me as tried on the different glasses I had made.

It's been pointed out to me that teh face on the right appears to have a "selection" line round it, I must admit I can't see it, but what that will be is I had to try and reduce the exposure on the last flash as my wife held the flash slightly closer on the last one and my face was just a tad brighter than the other two.....

3rd PLace ( Sad FAce ) hehehehehehe

Dougie, The first thing that I thought was, "O, Lookie, it's that 'rubber-faced dude,' Collin, on that Improv show, 'Whose Line Is It Anyway?' that was really popular a few years ago," (and maybe it still is, I've been without a satellite dish for quite a while now.)

The show was hosted by Drew Carey.

I found a clip that illustrates my meaning very well.

Here's that link!
Whose Line Is It Anyway?

Congrats on your yellow ribbon! It's pretty funny how the yellow caused you a sad face...and then you got one.

I'd personally be smiling with any of them!

Nice creative shot, a little different from the masses!

LOL thats funny as hell!! bahahah!!!
08/17/2009 04:19:04 PM
I am assuming that you flashed this three times to get the different glasses in place. The positioning is really good, and I think the use of the glasses is unique and creative. 7
