The Radiance

"We knew the world would not be the same.

A few people laughed, a few people cried, most people were silent.


I remembered the line from the Hindu scripture, the Bhagavad-Gita.

Vishnu is trying to persuade the Prince that he should do his duty,

And to impress him, takes on his multi-armed form and says,

"Now I am become Death, the destroyer of worlds."


I suppose we all thought that, one way or another." - J. Robert Oppenheimer


I've had the concept for this for a little while now and decided this one would be a good shot to try my new wireless triggers with. In all fairness, this one's been keeping me busy for longer than I initially thought, but I'm finally happy with the result, I think.

This was shot in my brother's living room with a Canon430exii from above and to the right of the model (again my brother - cheers Chris!) and a Vivitar 285 bottom left of model to give the lighting from the cracked planet. Then about 20 hours in Photoshop... took me a while to get this one on the right path, but I'm glad I persisted with it.
