I like to do monthly photo challenges and the theme for April was mixed light. The example given was a guy in a bar and while I thought that was cool I wanted to go a completely different route just to make it more challenging for myself. I couldn’t think of anything. Finally one day I was actually catching up on twitter and a profile pic caught my eye. It was of a, well, an eye, and I was intrigued. Then I remembered that the geniuses behind the Lord of the Rings films had decided to place white twinkle lights in front of the Lady Galadriel so that the reflection in her eye would look like stars and lend a feeling of otherworldliness. I know this because I am a huge geek and watched every. single. second. of the behind the scenes extended edition footage. Yes I did, I even looked at every single concept image. Anyway, I had my concept. Twinkle lights with window backlight to create edging and I was off. This one was really fun!
