OMAC - One Man Army Corps

I keep trying to move away from relying on the smoke machine, because, for some reason, I see it as a crutch for me. It makes it so simple to have really engaging shots with lots of action and motion without much effort! Because of this, I've been trying to mix up my photos with some using the smoke machine and some not using it, and I have to admit that I am almost universally unhappy with anything that doesn't have smoke or fog in it.

Such was the case with OMAC. It wasn't until I decided to sleep on it before making a decision that I realized that I really was happy with this one and should stop whining ;-)

The setup was: OMAC on the stove with the stove-top bulb on. I used a black light for the glow and a laser pointer for his eye glow. Crop him down, crop out his bent sword hand, overlay the circuitry pattern and clean up the colors, Save As..., Flickr, Blog. Nothing to it!
