Week 6 – 037/365
The Scarecrow is Dr. Jonathan Crane, a professor of psychology and expert in the psychology of fear, who turns to crime after being fired due to his eccentric behavior and appearance. His modus operandi is the adoption of a Scarecrow persona, used to threaten his victims into doing whatever he wants. He uses a variety of drugs and psychological tactics to exploit the fears and phobias of his adversaries, and the Scarecrow is a member of Batman’s rogues gallery.
Shamefully, this idea was not mine. I originally wanted today to just be some photos of smoke photography with some assistance from my boyfriend, but he wanted to have smoke rising from the Lego man’s hands (he was holding the Scarecrow at this point). As we didn’t have dry ice, this was impossible, so we took some shots of smoke. After a few shots, he got up and dug around for a piece for a Lego to stand on.
The first few were just ‘meh’ shots, consisting of a weak, wispy line of smoke that wasn’t even impressive when we use air currents to make it billow slightly. I convinced my boyfriend to sacrifice about 1/4 of a stick to the cause and we were able to get a very good background of smoke. Unfortunately, the smoke did not last very long, but we are both very happy with the results.
