This new still life in my nostalgia series was inspired by my wife.

What you see is actually a little corner in our living room which she recently “restyled” after receiving those 3 smaller Buddha sculptures as a gift. When I saw what she had done, the inspiration for this shot was born. I only slightly altered her original set-up. The Human League was the inspiration for the title…

As usually, shot with:

  1. My Pentax K10D
  2. My Pentax-A 1:1.7 50mm objective which is, I guess, just like the inspiration for the title from the 80’s
  3. My own painted with light technique. The tutorial can be found here

Just to make it a bit more interesting (read complicated), I didn’t just use a flashlight but added 3 burning candles and a burning incense stick to the equation.
