I kept snapping photos of Vazra as he lay on the floor. Because his hair is so long, he usually looks like a fluffy mop with eyes. But these photos kept showing a weird unfocused area in front and beneath him. It was as though he was resting atop a cushion of hot air.
I couldn’t for the life of me determine what was causing this intriguing special effect in the pictures. At least until I looked at the lens.
Kazon had been “helping” me take pictures a little earlier. At some point, he took a close look at the front of the camera. I hadn’t realized it when it happened, but apparently he’d touched his nose to the lens and left me with a nice wet smudge covering the bottom half of it.
Do you think I could market this as a new technology to special effects companies? I bet it costs less than CGI.
