Challenge: Personification II (Advanced Editing V)
Camera: Canon EOS-400D Rebel XTi
Lens: Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 USM II
Location: Kitchen at Home
Date: Feb 4, 2007
Aperture: 14
ISO: 100
Shutter: 1.6s
Galleries: Emotive, Still Life
Date Uploaded: Feb 4, 2007

Simple Setup:
Marbles on a white posterboard, some taped down because they kept rolling away from the crowd. One marble in the front dipped in a bit of red food coloring, also with a piece of tape on the bottom for stability. Camera set up on a stack of books, with 10 sec. timer, no flash. 1.6s exposure in the dark, with one burst of flash fired after shutter opened.
Post Picture Editing:
Brightness/Contrast, Image Size, Save for Web.

I'm really happy with how this picture turned out for me, it was inspired by something I saw another artist do, and have wanted to do something similar since. I really hope this does well.
