Comic character; with a real life dilemma for some:Split Personality Disorder. Showing that one personality does influence the other. I like characters-people with a story to tell and that could be understood by all. Thus one of two favorite comic characters.

Behind The Lens

Location
At a wax museum.
Time
It was indoors. The light was coming from the sides.
Lighting
The artificial light was coming from the sides. So I stayed to the front and slightly to a side. But the biggest secret is that I never used a flash.
Equipment
Just a simple digital camera set on auto. I usually over ride the cameras program so that all the pictures are up to -1 (underexposed) and the flash is never turned on.
Inspiration
Childhood comic hero (one of two).
Editing
Usually nothing complicated. Simple increase/decrease in sharpness, contrast, and light when needed. Here it was not needed.
In my camera bag
Depends on what pictures I am thinking of taking. A simple digital camera for landscapes, but it has to be a Nikon for the saturation of colors and light. Something more professional for everything else. I have about four cameras at the present.
Feedback
Work with the ambient light. Never against it. If it is well lighted do not add a flash to the mixture unless you absolutely need or want to (aka if you want to concentrate on one particular spot) . Even then when it comes to wax sculptures try NOt to use a flash- it will give an unpleasant artificial glow.
