Week 4 – 028/365
“Ugh, why is it cold? Oh dear god it’s snowing.” That was my first full sentence this morning and I decided I absolutely not was going outside today. I decided to pull out my little photo studio, stole my boyfriend’s new Lego creature and started snap-snap-snapping away:
I like this pose. I imagined that it was reaching up for a little Lego man as he was running across a bridge or in a helicopter. I like the slight glow in it’s eyes from how the light reflected.
In my opinion, it looks like he is either reaching out for a lover in a poetic manner, or reaching out for prey. Whichever works.
I liked having the subject on the left this time, breaking the white/black space with a single arm that breaks into the ‘high focus’ range.
If you cannot tell, I have a thing for having a busy subject almost completely on one side and being balanced out by some white space (or in this case, black space) on the other side. I never reposed the creature, I just moved where I was sitting.
The black background looks different in each image because the background was actually a dull gray and I had to reprocess each image until they were ‘perfect’. Perfect for each image didn’t make each background a uniform black. I didn’t want a solid black int he final image because I enjoyed the texture and the slight blue tint. The other backgrounds also didn’t need to be a complete black, and looked fine (in my opinion) in several variants of gray.
