messing with the major histocompatibility complexes
(the article I had in mind requires a subscription...this one's similar though: [link] )

Tutorials and Resources
- Forced perspective with bokeh: [link]

Materials and Methods
Nikon D80 + 50mm F1.8 + IR remote. Composition took forever -_- . I eventually realized to put a mirror behind the camera so I could look at the camera LCD after every photo and adjust my pose accordingly for the next shot and get closer and closer to the desired composition. Back lighting + Christmas lights for the bokeh. Christmas lights were hung and tied into composition...weird setup. Darkened shadows. Color balancing. Decreased blue content. Noise reduction.

Additional Comments
Playing with perspectives and watermarks ;P

How do you do these?
I'm trying to get some bokey shots, but my 'dots' look nothing like that.... :(

I know you use christmas lights, but how do you set up the shoot, do you use light, etc?

Fantastic concept and the bokeh is spot on. I like the fact the hair is there otherwise the neck and face would have left it a little too abstract.
