This photo was taken in my kitchen using some pretty simple Gear. You might be surprised to discover how low-tech my "photography studio" really is.

Darth Vader is the central character in the Star Wars universe. Created by George Lucas, the character was the primary villain in the original trilogy Star Wars (1977), Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back (1980), and Star Wars: Return of the Jedi (1983), but he was one of the heroes in the prequel trilogy Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace (1999), Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones (2002), and Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith (2005). His story is one of tragedy as the young Anakin Skywalker is lured away from his Jedi mentors to the Dark Side of the Force by Emperor Palpatine and eventually betrays everyone he ever cared for. In the original trilogy Darth Vader was played primarily by David Prowse and voiced by James Earl Jones. Anakin Skywalker was played by Jake Lloyd and Hayden Christensen in the prequel trilogy. Darth Vader is a powerful character and perhaps the most iconic figure in the Star Wars saga.
