when I got the antlers froom my grandma almost a year ago I knew I wanted to do something with it. last week I found it and thought about this idea.

the real pain in the ass was the wood where the antlers were attached on. I couldn't quite make it realistic in the photo. I decided to drape a black piece of cancas around it, and take the risk of the folded canvas (top of the table)

big light under the table, changed whitebalance to blue. made some adjustments on my body (especially my belly ;)) and cropped. I didn't really plan to use a weird aspect ratio, but that was something I couldn't avoid. used curves to make the blue come out a bit more bright and strong.
I rotated the photo like it seems to be a trophy on the wall, like hunters do with their catch.

I hope you like this concept of surrealism!
