A Vampire a Day... Decomposing Vampire

How to photo-shoot a vampire decomposing under natural light?

I tried to tackle this task by using a lensbaby--Lensbaby Composer, to be precise [www.lensbaby.com]. I used the star-shaped aperture ring for the lensbaby. One can try the heart-shaped aperture ring, depending on the message that needs to be conveyed through the image. Or one can customize one of the aperture rings and cut it in the shape of a cross (just a suggestion...). Either way, I found that the lensbaby allows me to visually express the effect of the vampire falling apart, decomposing into a million tiny (starry in this case) bright pieces. Here's an example:

Happy October and Happy Vampire (photo)shooting!
