Challenge: In The Style Of: cutout (Advanced Editing VII)
Collection: 2013 challenge
Camera: Canon PowerShot S5 IS
Date: Jun 25, 2013
Aperture: F/4
ISO: 200
Shutter: 1/160 sec.
Date Uploaded: Jun 19, 2013

A piece of white paper taped to a window. My guy with arms up that I cut out taped to the paper. A hole cut in the paper so light would enter. A piece of paper towel taped over the guy and the first piece of paper, and still another piece of paper towel placed at the upper left. The paper towel I used was Scott and it has a nice ribbed surface. Some wrinkled up cling wrap running down the left side. Then I brushed some water on it, actually lighted those areas up some. And the black specks are cat food, just smudged on.

All this is taped to a window. Waited for the sun light to be in the best to light it all up and took some shots.

Picked this off the browse page because Karen recently looked at it. So thank you Karen exceedingly for lifting the curtain to this wonderful opera. And thank you John for your lyrical image. As much for the image as also for explaining how you you went about achieving it, revelatory and inspirational. And to John (cutout) for the original dream and body of art. This day is the brighter for it.

Whoa!!! I thought I was having some kind of strange hallucination when the DPC page popped up and there was a jmritz photo in the blue ribbon spot. What is this world coming to? Big congratulations but all of yours are blue ribbons winners as far as I am concerned.

Congrats on the blue. Awesome image, I'm sure Mr. Cutout himself would find this a fitting winner.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/03/2013 08:18:02 AM
I honestly thought this was Cutout himself.
But a few among the top pictures made me think that way.
Regarding your set-up: can it be more original than that? :) Congrats on the blue
