Alex. The projector's glassy lens is clearer here, the flashlight's streaks go round and round it, shining and it seems it is itself another eye. I unified Alex and the antique opaque projector by using a similar color, atmospheric blue. I dont like to use blue in my photos. This goes back to my painting. I learned about the four color palette devised by the ancient Greek painters of antiquity. Red, yellow, white, and a sort of bluish -black color. Im not going into it here - dont worry. Simply put, more restricted color implies greater depth of form. Blue is tricky.
We have many colored filters at our workshop. One other note, sometimes I use my hands in the image, light them as they move. You might see this here - some warm color at the left.
