Like Blood From A Turnip
Like Blood From A Turnip

Photograph Information Photographer's Comments
Challenge: Tacks! (Advanced Editing IV)
Camera: Olympus C-750UZ
Location: Alamogordo, NM
Date: Apr 15, 2005
Aperture: f 4.5
ISO: 100
Shutter: 1/800

Made out a check, stuck it to a turnip with tacks, put on a stamp. Had my wife hold it in the opening of a mailbox while I put fake blood on the tack points then I shot.
Unfortunately, it was very windy and I took the pictures too quickly and did not notice how little the turnip actually showed before the wind messed up the setup.

try shooting in the shade...less harsh shadows there

Great idea, poor execution. Here's my opinion: Composition wise, you could convey the whole message without the mailbox or the hands. Turnip could be a little more visible also. Hope this helps.

Nice concept, but the mailbox is actually distracting to me.
