I work in the exhibitions industry, many years ago when Culture Club was all the rage, I was working on the World Travel Market at Earls Court. Madame Tussuad's was exhibiting at the show and had a wax work model of Boy George on their stand. Everything was closed up at 10 pm the night before the show opened. By the morning the head of Boy George had gone missing.

Was it a fan who nicked it? Or was it someone who hated him, stuck a wick in it and set light to it?

Nope! Hi Paul..Just thought I would share..Some of the figures were outstanding..Although the lighting there was darker and set to where it was really hard to tell they were wax...    my flash made them look less realistic.. i wonder if I backed off if it would flood them out less?

Better to bounce the flash or use a diffuser.

Bounced flash can only be done with an off camera flash gun. The flash is pointed at a white ceiling, wall or piece of card (or purpose made brolly) in the direction of the subject roughly mid-way between the flash unit and the subject. The bounced light is softer than direct illumination.
[diagram=366_0] Here Green is the camera, red the flash unit, yellow the flash beam.

So far as I am aware there are no diffusers available for cameras with built-in flash, but you can use some low tactile opalescent tape over the flash lens. If your camera is an auto exposure/flash, it should make the necessary compensation. Again, this diffused light is softer.

Karen thanks for the photos but I think that the last one might be of John Singer Sargent's portrait of his mothe.

I could be wrong and I've never been there.
Rosalind Franklin was my first cousin and one my life's main regrets is that I never met this brilliant and beautiful lady.

Wasn't it whistlers mother?

I never knew cleopatra was crosseyed. She looks like she is taking it up the ass's milk!

Apparently, the Madame Tussaudes model of Kyle Manogue (can't spell) had to have a new bottom because everyone was rubbing it. In the 80's Mrs Thatcher had the largest number of visitors taking photos of her model with someone sticking the v sign up at it.

I like the idea that when you are no longer famous you get melted down and turned into someone else. What an insult. I'd hate to be turned into a star I hated.
