The photo was later re-staged using vinegar and peroxide, a papier-mâché volcano from an old science fair project and shot with a googlepixel camera that resulted in 1,000 individual photographs. Each photo was then Photoshoped AF using the palette from a 1960’s Disney park brochure, levels and sharpness tweaked to make each one almost unrecognizable.

With everything re-assembled, the lightning was then added using Deluxe Paint IV.

Voila.
