Wellington, October 2010: This is the photo I have entered into brief 3 of the Canon EOS Photo 5 competition. Image was made with a combination of my old toy cap-gun, backlight flash, incense, a fake bullet hanging from the ceiling, photoshop and a helluva lot of time and patience…

We often hear the term “smoking-gun”, but I wanted to take it a step further and include the bullet… In using back-lighting and contrast I have endevoured to create a sense of menace and anticipation… Canon EOS 30D/Pentacon 50mm 1.8/Quantaray 1000w flash
