Straight out of Twin Peaks?

As an addition to the technique I talked about in my last post, consider also adding color gels (basically colored pieces of plastic) over the flash head to create a different mood.  This self-portrait uses a red gel and makes me look like I belong in a David Lynch movie.

Maybe I’ll tell our son that this is what I’ll look like the next time he thinks it’s okay to check and see if the hand vac can sweep water up from out of the toilet.  For the curious among you out there, the answer is “yes”, though later analysis reveals that this particular application falls outside of the design specs spelled out by the manufacturer.

Next up – back to more light hearted fare.
