Abomination (0)

I've shot the Abomination before, but he never seems to turn out quite right. I'm usually happy with the pictures overall, but there's always something just a little...off. Not sure what though.

Just as a little background, the Abomination is one of the Hulk's bad guys. I'm sure you could guess by the giant green guy with tiny pants and a simplistic name, but that's what I do. I'm a giver. The majority of Hulk's early stories revolved around him trying to find solitude in the deserts of the American southwest, only to be rudely interrupted by the US military, the Avengers, or, in this case, the Abomination.

I tried to create the feeling that we're looking through the eyes of some poor sap who crossed Abomination on a bad day and he's looming over, about to finish us off (but not before we're rescued by a timely superhero, natch). I was trying for a "high-noon" look with harsh light and dusty colors, and tried something new that I will definitely be using again in the future. You see, I actually used a reflector to bounce light back up at the figure! Well, his teeth at least.

Hush; let me be proud of myself.
