    I noticed earlier that I was getting close to 666 posts. So... I decided to try to come up with a Chiller-esque shot, but I'm not as creative or skilled as him so... this is the best I could do.

    Two versions:

    1.

    2.

    Critique, criticism, condemnation, commentary, etc..., all welcomed!

    Interesting. I think I like the bloody one better, although you could have done the blood a bit differently. Perhaps with the knife stuck in the table and capture a drop as it comes off the knife.

    Very original none the less. Good job!

    I'm going to look up your 333rd post to see if it was half as evil ;)

    Thank you. I'm not sure what my wife would have to say about sticking it in the table, but I really like the idea! Maybe I'll find an old beat-up table and re-shoot this!

    Yeah, I like kris style blades, but unfortunately, the shape of the handguard, although very cool looking, would render this one completely impractical/unuseable from a fighting/self-defense point of view... if it were a real knife and not a chromed display blade that can't be sharpened.

    Chiller... you never cease to creep me the f*ck out! :lol:

    Droplets on the table would have been good! Damn! Definitely needs a re-shoot!

    LOL! :lol::lmao::lol:

    I personally find this highly offensive.

    Just kidding. What a great way to bring in the 666th post. I don't think of things like that.

    This is actually the only one that I though of. I didn't have any clever ideas for any of the other milestones...

    For my 34th post I wish I had done something Walter Payton related (as I sit here in my Walter Payton jersey).

    Is that kind of like trying pot but not inhaling?! :lol:

    I prefer #2, although I think it could have benefited from some different, darker lighting.



    Now that we got that out of the way, what's the deal with the items in the photo? I surmise that you don't just keep those around as photo props?

    I agree with the lighting comment. I spent all of about ten minutes on this shot and didn't bother with controlling the light. I set up the props and shot... For the re-shoot (if it ever happens), I'll be using a rattier table, some melted down candles, more Sriracha sauce spilled liberally (that's what I used for the blood), and I'll be shaping the light a little more (I'm thinking snoot).

    As for the props: I used to teach knife fighting and my nephew, knowing I like knives, spent some of his allowance (supplemented by my sister-in-law) to buy me that knife as a gift when he was eight-ish because he saw it and pestered her to let him buy it for me; the little pewter dude has been sitting on my desk forever and I have no idea where he came from; the book is from my library as one of my degrees is in Comparative Religions and I have a LARGE collection of religious books; and the amulet is actually Buddhist (the eight points represent the eight-fold path) and was given to me by a work friend as a $10 Secret Santa gift a decade or so ago.

    Either that or my Lord and Master demands that I keep these items to honor HIM... MUAHAHAHA!! :lol:
