Pumpkin Becomes Jack

Here's a free desktop wallpaper for you. 

How I made it:

Get a pumpkin.  Remove the guts and carve it (with help from my 5 year old son). Use tea lights, a total of 7: 2 behind the front garlands, 2 inside Jack and 3 behind to light up the backdrop. Hang a tablecloth that has a fall theme on it for the backdrop. Adjust the camera and garland position to hide the candles. Dim the overhead light to taste. Set your camera on a tripod. Keep the ISO low to reduce noise. Set to 2 sec timer to avoid shake. Shoot.
