So... This one really through me for a loop. It was the last couple of hours, I had absolutely no ideas. I kept bugging my husband: "What should I do for duct tape!?"
Yeah -- he was pretty useless.
But then again, so was I.
This wasn't supposed to have a cat in it.
This wasn't supposed to have a shadow in it!
It was just a wine bottle, covered with duct tape with some pussy willows. I was just going to go for the contrasty black and white shot.
But I couldn't get my background to go dark. I didn't seem to be able to adjust my flash low enough. So I put the vase up on a book case, so that the walls were a lot farther away in order to darken the background, and put the flash on the opposite bookcase.
Oh Cool! I like the shadow! but it was on just a sliver of a wall.
Ok, use the duct tape, and tape up some spare mat board. Hey cool shadow!
Moriarty, get down!!
Wait!! No!! Moriarty stay there!
Umm... turn around, all I see is your back.
No... turn around the other way!
Whoot! One shot with hum looking towards the vase.
Am I going to get dinged because the duct tape isn't the real and total subject? I don't care -- I really like this shot!
hey cool -- the description of the challenge doesn't say that the duct tape has to be the subject. It just has to be a photo with duct tape!
By the way -- it's really difficult to get a good wrap (with duct tape) around a wine bottle!! And it's starting to unwrap now.
I don't recommend using duct tape in your decorating.
Thanks for the comments! (and a fav!!)
Sometimes the best things happen by accident. (actually, more often than not with me. :)
