f-stop 4.5, shutter speed 13.0, ISO 200
The book is an old Swedish hymnal I found in my basement. The flames and red tinted hands symbolize the menace of Satan.
I used a lighter and a laser pointer to achieve the fiery ambiance around and inside the chest. I also flashed my hands and the hymnal with a strobe to bring them into focus.
f-stop 3.5, shutter speed 15.0, ISO 800
This picture is similar to another painting with light picture i've turned in, but Heffron's face is more in focus in this pic. I flashed him once with a green gel, then painted his face with a red Poweraid. I especially like the stars in the background.

Gary Neeley likes to relax with his dogs Thor and Hercules when he gets out of work. The dogs were partially responsible for dragging him down a flight of stairs and fracturing his right foot, but he has graciously decided to forgive them. I was able to use one strobe bounced off a wall at camera right to light the couch, wall, and subjects.
