The Goon

The setup was a bit more elaborate for this one. We have some soapstone (?) drink coasters that served as the sidewalk, the backdrop is a shelf door piece from the As-Is section of our local Ikea, The Goon and Franky booth appear in Eric Powell's monthly comic The Goon, and the lighting was limited to the light above the stove and an LED flashlight behind the backdrop. The smoke machine was also (obviously) used. I would like to congratulate myself for growing a third arm for this shot, because I still cannot understand how I operated the smoke machine, held the flashlight, and pressed the shutter all at the same time with just two hands. This one also took a bit of fiddling in Photoshop to balance the colors with the lighting.
