Photography Assignment


Our Daily Challenge - Jun 11, 2014 - "Faux"

Daily Dog Challenge 954. "Woe is Me"

Poor guys - weird hats two days in a row.


Props


How about that hat!!!

It's the Party City green bowler hat covered with a 1 yd square of black fabric ($5/yd).

Set hat, upside down, in middle of square. Rubber band four corner ends together and put in crown. Spread out remaining and repeat.

Cut a circle of cardboard and shove in crown to hold ends inside.

Turn over. Tie thin black ribbon tightly around crown base (by rim) and pull fabric up to crown then allow to flop over ribbon.

Add a handy gold chain necklace and an Ostrich feather, purchased yesterday (on sale for $4!)

Post Processing


Uh… yes, there was some.

Certainly more than I typically do, although not as much as you might think - or at least not as much as I thought I was going to have to do.

Mostly I applied a very heavy vignette, swiped a polarizer brush over areas that refused to submit to the vignette (the gold collar, for example) and cranked up the warmth. A lot.
