    I was just experimenting a bit today. Cannot decide if this is plain disgusting, simply boring, or anything in between. Please give me your thoughts.

    Reminds me of something you would see on a little pamplet in a doctors office, or a poster in a doctors office talking about a disease of somesort. Good clean shot though.

    Nice shot, good composition. It literally sent a little pain down my vein though!

    Looks like you could sell it to a drug prevention group for poster printing. I think it looks good but it is a little disturbing. Was this made with a lightbox?

    Thanks!


    Yes indeed. If you speak of the sort of lightbox to put your negatives or slides on.

    Cool.
    It is not blood we see here, is it?
    It is a colour?!

    I wish I had that kind of lightbox. Accounts for some good light effects!!!

    Thanks .. as for the blood, I should not spoil it, should I? ;)

    As for the lightbox, all you need is a white-ish kind of glass plate and put a light source beneath it.

    Looks great, but what do you want it to represent...?
    (The old "what is the artist trying to tell us?" thing ;))

    The reason I´m asking is cos in my medical years I saw a lot of that sort of thing but never a syringe lying in a pool of blood...is the intention perhaps something about the dangers of lab accidents and infectious materials...what NOT to do etc?

    OK, I saw this question coming ... and this is because there was no origial intent other than make it look good. Actually, that syringe was used to apply the "blood" for some experimental shots on a lightbox. Then I suddenly thought, hmm, why not take a picture of the syringe itself.

    If anyone could give this image a meaning, I would be more than glad ;)

    Your ideas are not really bad.

    We could also claim it says "stop blood doping" and relates to the current Tour de France ;)

    Thanks :) .. However, the more i look at it the more posterization i see. Maybe I will reduce the contrast in the bright parts a bit.
