That's me in frame. My daughter helped by firing the shutter. Turns out that it is hard to hold more than a couple nails in your teeth at one time. I ended up sandwiching these nails between a couple pieces of tape.

Would prefere a darker vignette. Something gritty. HDR (or whatever) really takes away from this.

I'm not really sure why I find this so apealing. Lots of emotion conveyed in the mouth, neck and shoulders. Love the lighting
