Conceptual shoot using string lights, a large reflector, and my trusty Mamiya

I wanted to do something with string lights but I wanted to use it in a dark comedic way. It took me a while to find the lights, apparently they are not so readily available if it's not Christmas! Thankfully, Target saved the day. Here are the results of that shoot.

As usual, I home developed and scanned the negatives myself.
