last of Paddy's June Choice
I wanted to try something different with your choice of HANDS IN PRAYER Paddy, not a familiar pose you understand. I wanted a black background, the only thing I could find was a black fur coat, the first photo I had to crop as I just couldn't get it right, also in black and white. I had the coat on back to front with my arms in the sleeves. thought it would look better with thumbs showing so I hung the coat over the back of a chair then had the camera up close on the tripod, put on timer, then wrapped my arms around the camera, this worked quiet well as I could see on the screen where my hands where. I had a lot of natural light coming in from the right from windows and glass door. Was fun trying something different and challenging myself. What do you think? Now I have done them all for June.
