Swindlers from foreign countries are cheating people out of their money through phone calls and the Internet. Officials warn about offers to hold large sums of money for foreign governments and lottery scams that involve the winner's financial cooperation.

Good stuff. Did you use a fog machine? Please explain the setup.

I knew I should've written a detailed post on this one. Illustrations tend to spark the most (and fastest) questions.

I gutted a dead monitor and put a small fog machine inside it. The model activated the fog machine with his foot for 30 second cycles.

There is one strobe with a green gel to the left and a snooted strobe with a blue gel to the right.
