Occupied By Octopi is the result of an hour so of time to myself, and well... not a whole lot to do.
Pretty simple set up, shot in my bedroom against a white sheet (as to make extraction a little easier), lit with a single profoto pro-7b over head through a 24 inch softbox, grabbed the octopus tenticles off of a stock site, chopped everything up, and toyed around with all of it until I got some that I liked.
Far from perfect, I know. Probably would have benefited from giving it a little more time rather than rushing, but hey, what can ya do right?

Would love to hear any thoughts or opinions ya may have!

Best,
bradhardy

Very nice.

But you're going to have to deal with copyright infringement issues if you ever try and do anything commercial with this kind of work.

This is cool, what are the watery ripples at the top of the shot though? It looks like the surface of the water is across your face, but then it looks like you're much much deeper when you see the ripples at the top of the image.
