Collection: Portfolio

Location: Richmond, VA
Date: Feb 15, 2009

This was the silliest and most colorful photo shoot I have done to date. Much fun though. And just think how many TO DO notes I can make for myself with the leftover stickies. :-) Minimal processing --- sharpen, crop and heighten shadows slightly.

Oh my goodness --- my first ribbon and new PB. Very exciting indeed. Thanks to all who have made nice comments. I am embarassed at how simple the setup was (especially in light of 21_F.gif limerick and her amazing crafting abilities). I just took several pads of the post-its that go back-and-forth (sticky on alternate ends) and stretched them out like slinkies. Pushed the pads together and then pinched at one end. Background was a big piece of black velvet. Not one post-it was unstuck or restuck --- or at least not until one of my dogs knocked the whole thing off the coffee table and I had to rearrange a bit. Natural light was coming through a nearby window.

Here is a wide shot of one attempt, in case the above doesn't make sense.

Brilliant - I mean the picture and the idea behind it! Congrats on your maiden ribbon! May be the red is too dominant and hence you got a red ribbon :)

Absolutely fabulous! I am feeling so deficient in creative genius! When this challenge came out, I couldn't imagine how it could possibly be this beautiful or interesting. Kudos to you guys for showing the rest of us how limited our creative thinking is :) Congratulations!
