[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I took this photo as part of an assignment for a B&W photo class. I don't quite remember the exact specifications of the assignment, but I think it had something to do with shapes. I believe this was the first time that I experimented with a 'studio' setup. Photo was taken w/ film, and scanned onto my computer.

Nice shot - kinda creepy.. Good composition and depth of field. I really like the contrasting tones and choice of B&W.

this setup looks familiar...great contrast and use of short DOF...i dig the skulls since i tend to spend too much time studying this type of stuff as is...peace***

good contrast and comp. whats the story with the metal? whatever it is i think it made for a good shot. keep up the good work.


I'm digging the head tilt of the skull in the background; it brings to mind an army officer's condescension... Good FOV and composition, the organic profile of the front skull looks great with the back one. I'm reading "Frankenstein" right now and this definitely fits in with the mood; maybe a dust jacket cover in your future?
