if only it looked like that, experimenting with syringes since i realized i work in a pharmacy and you dont need a script for them, also didnt want to do the typical blood stuff (will be coming at some point) but yeah, series didnt turn out exactly how i wanted but i got some good shots.

What can be said? There is so much to state.
The concept of using syringes for a photographic purpose always has an impact on the audience and down onto the individual gazing at it. The neon colors and liquid give that "acidic" sensation. When the term "acid" is uttered, the first thing that pops up is either the syringe with the chemical escape and the vibrant colors that lead the gateway into ecstasy. This does that image and though perfectly. The colors follow from the darkest to lighter colors in reasonable and color wise logical order.
So not one syringe is overwhelmed by another.

There is the sense of a vice that has an ugly taste, but here, the vision if lively with the vibrant array of colors that are like a neon painter's palette. Plus this was an idea that must the taken time and dedication, knowing that you filled the needles with this liquid and have them around like appetizers at a dinner party. I haven't seen photos like this with more than one concept behind it. Brilliant and an overall outstanding piece of creativity

you got a lot clours and light in ur last pictures .... i love that. i know the lighning one is more work than a simple smartphone klick .. keep this way it makes ur differend ;oD

i would fav this one for the dramatic look like a new drug to hide in something cool looking case for a better selling especialy for young buyers at clubs ... and noone would ask if that cool stuff would kill you by time ... like every drug.

maybe it was only a way to get the liquid out of the sticks ... but i love it ;oP

great work/done/idea/picture ... its ur choice ;oD

I'm not sure if I fully understood your comment but thank you! And I couldn't get it out of the sticks with it I had to dump them in through the back because there's chunks of glass and stuff. XD

where do u get so strong light fluid and the needles?
Felosoraptor Featured By Owner Jan 29, 2013  Student Photographer
i work in a pharmacy and syringes are otc items, so i bought a pack after work one day, also the glowy stuff is broken open glowsticks believe it or not. i popped the back off and dumped it in because trying to suck it up was pretty much impossible, i think it might be too viscous and theres glass bits.

omg so its just normal glow sticks... where do u buy them? what brand is it?

i just go to the dollar store because its cheaper than buying the big packs by like 5 bucks. im an art student so im broke all the time. i go as cheap as possible and work with it :D when i cracked them they didnt look bright but i think when the fluids mixed more outside of the case it actually got brighter!
