Once again tonight, I didn’t take a picture before class, and then it was dark when I was out of class. I originally wanted to go do some star trails tonight, but it was getting late, and I hadn’t had dinner, and there was a full (and very bright) moon which made it difficult to see any stars. So I was asking Elliot what I should take a picture of, and he said “will you do a challenge?” I told him yes, so her grabbed a few items from my house, and we then headed to his apartment. Once we got to his apartment he grabbed a few more things and put them on his table, and told me that I had to use at least one of the objects on the table. I could shoot anywhere, and use any lighting and combination of objects that I wanted, but I had to use one of those objects on the table. And it also had to be in black and white. As soon as I saw the knife I knew I wanted to do something with it, and then my mind made the connection to the hat.
I know the “blood” doesn’t look realistic at all, but hey, it was somewhat rushed, and my first time faking blood.
It was definitely a fun process (the challenge part), I think I might make this a common thing. So, by all means, if you would like to challenge me with something, let me know!
