The Mortician

By Kali
Well heres who youre likely to run into if you hang around on one of those tables too long... actually a very charming chap who spoke eagerly about the pride he takes in his work, and the special respect he affords each person. He talks to them too.They all do.....
its not so scary really..thanks or being brave and having a look!!

Hi Kali, Think the lamp is working against the composition with the flash bouncing off. The knife at a different angle would be better. A saw would have really set the composition on fire. lol

I can do something about the light, as it isnt really on in the original, just me messing in p shop to make it look on, with the render>lighting effects thing, I used a 'soft spotlight' I know its not quite there...would appreciate advice! ahem he idnt have a saw to hand! Also I was working at low light levels so had a v small DOF to play with as it wasnt poss to use a 'pod in it would have been even harder to get a er larger instrument in focus...also I was slightly unerved as although we were alone in there at first, a customer was bought in while I was shooting....urk.

the light adds to the intensity of the inevitable, scary and the chain thing holding up his green tunic resembles the cuts that will follow, well seen kali
