The shower scene from Hitchcock's Classic "Pyscho" still sticks in my head... and still is as intense everytime I see it, as the first time it was shown on the big screen.

The goal for me on this was to capture the vintage feel and try to invoke the thought of hearing the sound of the shower splatting onto the porcelain and echoing throughout the bathroom as in the film, without having to add the knife of which I even tried, but the knife was just to much!

And Yes I really took the camera into the shower ... !
