Mad Man With A Box

The setup for this photo was pretty straightforward. The TARDIS is a 1 1/2 inch HO scale police box which I suspended with black thread in front of a 12x12 inch sheet of black glitter paper. A push LED mounted inside a clear plastic cup shined a blue light onto the glitter paper to help produce the bokeh.
