Living Christmas Tree

I saw this image in a photography magazine and was inspired. Poor Pete was the subject...I wrapped him in lights and had him stand on a black backdrop. Then I got the ladder out and took the picture from a birds eye vantage point. I turned the lights off and relied on natural light filtering in from the windows to light my subject. My aperture was wide open at 2.8 and my shutter speed of 1/10... super slow. The lense flare and contrast were adjusted later in photoshop.
