Remember, remember the fifth of November,
The gunpowder treason and plot,
I know of no reason
Why the gunpowder treason
Should ever be forgot.


All in camera. No photoshop except slight exposure adjustment and contrast.

2.5sec exposure. Flash was manually fired to my left as the shutter opened, and I then moved it closer to my face. I held it with a matte black kite rod, behind the mask.

Photo with major help from @stacy

Furricane says:
@rachel, about 25 =) timing the mask to get to my face just as the shutter closed was a little rough...also, I had to be smooth about it, no jerks, and no pauses

hahaha nice Furricane...
Posted: Nov 5th, 2009 - 7:45am -
Furricane says:
@mattyc, I used a matte black (and really thin) kite rod. it was fastened to the back of the mask at an angle. it was long enough so that my hand was out of the shot as I moved the mask closer to my face.
