Best one out of about 100 shots. It took awhile to get a good one. Used one halogen light; a big piece of black felt; a fake application form, financial aid application form; and my dad's miniature diploma. In post processing: levels, curves, unsharp mask, and crop.

The title comes from the Greek philosopher Epictetus (55 AD - 135 AD), found via Google.
