I painted this snowscape of a mountain + forests combined with some actual dirt, twigs and powdered sugar for snow -- and tried to light it and capture it with my stills camera. I had absolutely no idea what I was going for or how it would turn out.

It actually turned out pretty cool.

The "lights" used were a few cheap colored tungsten bulbs and an even cheaper flourescent lamp fixture.
I'll be posting the pic soon (need to scan the slide first).

Have any of you ever gone out on a limb or done anything unorthodox to get a shot -- only to be pleasantly surprised with the result?

(Post pics if you got 'em)

This pic is from a short that I just shot. I had all my lights along but when
I got to this particular location, the lighting was perfect. The actor was
keyed with a huge flourescent sign just outside of the frame and the time of
day influenced the mood. I'm really happy with the way it turned out.
