I finally had time to try some new things with my camera since I've taken a few weeks off from school for summer break. I originally wanted to mess around with some self portrait work, and some other ideas. This shot was not meant to be taken serious, just a means to casually explore a new technique. I spent some time getting the facial expressions and lighting I wanted, but I clearly didn't spend enough time on the scene itself (Somehow there is some hybrid game of Hold em and 5-card stud). Anyways, I completely dropped my usual post processing workflow, and tried new ideas. After spending LOTS of time, I got some results I liked.
