|Basic concept shot. I'm hoping people see that the hands are framing the card in a shape of a spade. It seems obvious to me, but we shall see with the voters :-) I thought it a cool idea.
I am kind of frustrated with the shadow on the card, but I think it gives a little more depth than other versions I shot. Used a black pillow case for the background, my 2 clamp lights, and shop lights bounced off of white foam boards, my typical mickey mouse set up :-P Shooting was a pain! Those are my hands, and I was set up on my kitchen floor. Because I had the camera on the tripod pointing straight down, I had to lay on the floor quickly and place my hands while the timer was ticking. With the tripod legs so close, and in the corner (to support the foam boards) and the shop light legs and light cords all over, this was tricky to quickly get up and down. It took a LOT of shots to get my hands right. So I definitely got my exercise this morning! :-P It was like doing a bunch of squat thrusts or something, hehehe
