Losing his mind.. (crazy strobist shot of my step-son)

Last night I decided to shoot my step-son and we both sat down to think of some crazy idea's to try and do for my deadline for the photoodyssey2011 website (where I need to take a photo that day and post it).

Anyway we came up with the idea to replace the top of his head with his plasma ball. It was a little bit tricky to get it to work, but four shots later, some textures and some blending I got this image.

Lighting

I used four lights for this image,

Two softboxs, One at the front camera left as the main and another on camera right as fill, a blue gelled strobe shooting the wall and a strobe at the back right aiming at him.

Anyway I hope you all enjoy, we both had fun and It was great to see his face this morning when he first saw it
