Sometimes I get inspired to shoot something in an unusual way. This is actually a 3D printed skull made by a team at Universiti Malaya in Kuala Lumpur for surgical training and research. I was there on assignment and while I shot the regular image of the skull, I thought that I could make it a lot funkier by putting a wireless flash in the skull itself and shooting that. It's not a studio shot by any means -- it was taken right at the table they had set up to display the item and the reason the background is all black is that the exposure from the flash is so bright compared to the ambient light that the background was underexposed and appears black. Nikon D600, AF-S Nikkor 24-85mm f/3.5-4.5.
