135/365: A Sith in Time

135/365: A Sith in Time

Strapped for inspiration at the literal last minute, I return to the subject of time pressure, this time as an actual villain in the form of my daughter's Lego Darth Vader alarm clock.

The hasty setup meant that I decided to shoot hand-held without a flash; thank goodness for image stabilized lenses and lying flat on the ground! The hardest part was getting a stable shot with the time illuminated--you have to push on his head to get a few precious seconds of the red light, which is easier said than done; getting him in focus meant being just beyond arm's length from his head, so pushing the button, getting back in place, composing, focusing, and getting a few shots off was quite a challenge!
