The past two weeks photos have been more photoshop oriented... which is something that i need to practice - learning new techniques is fun, but sometimes tricky to achieve perfection.
this is the most recent shot - week eighteen. cynthia, crashing a tea party :)
we photographed the tea scene first, then shot cynthia on a plain background after - so i could 'cut' her out and place her in the scene. i kept the lights in the same spot so the angles of shadows would be the same, but it was tricky getting the angle of view (looking downward) to match - as well as where her hands would be placed, etc. overall, i think it's cute.
week seventeen was during all the madness of moving into the new apartment. actually, i did it a week late, but will make up for that with 2 shots in one week soon.
the photo represents how things felt for a little while - all jumbled around, nothing in the right place, a bit chaotic. here's hoping we don't move again anytime too soon.
i am about 50% satisfied with the shot. i didn't give myself a ton of time to edit, and would have liked to fix things like shadows - and when i look at it now i hate the box in front. i will re-edit this one in the future. it was fun to shoot, a little tricky, but i love having a remote control for the camera for stuff like this :)
it's a long weekend here! i'm shooting some portraits tomorrow, then hoping to do a few DIY projects around the new apartment. we had brunch on the balcony in the sunshine this morning, it was lovely.
