I threw this Christmas sweater party a few years ago with this photo in mind. None of the guests knew they were going to be extras in a staged photo but thankfully the two participants here agreed to take part once they arrived. The rest were kept out of the loop until after this moment happened. This was the first and last frame we took of this as the mood would not have been the same after the rest knew what was gonna happen and I don't think buddy man wanted to take it in the face too many more times.

In the Tableau photo essay.

    christmas and "split second" themed all in one go. very apt. this is by far the best "in the face" picture I've seen in "split second"... I vote yep for this.

    I voted before I read that this is staged. Still, I think it's remarkably good for having been the only shot. And "nog" means "enough" in Swedish, which adds a nice meta meaning to the picture, though, again, it would have been way cooler had the guy in the ugly sweater actually come on to the trigger-happy girl by some lewd suggestion.

    I love the look on the egg nog splashing, but I also wish you would have shot a second shot a moment after to get everyone's reaction.
