4/365 Footlight Parade
Some of you have may remember one of the earlier images from the Baby Bop series using the baby shoes of the various Greene siblings. Today I was playing around with them some more-my first couple of ideas did not work so well-I need to think about how I can position them up without having to rely on a lot of ReTouch or Photoshop Fix to cover up spots. So instead I tried something a little more straightforward. It has been fun working with the shoes, especially since I know the people who once walked in them. There is a box full of these things, so there are endless possibilities I think in working with them.
I have also included a shot so you can see what the image looked like beforehand. I rely almost exclusively on natural light-I am very fortunate in that the room I work in has a large pair of windows with southern exposure.I am pretty low-tech when it comes to equipment–for me, the simpler the better. But I am realizing that I may have to investigate using reflectors possibly. One thing I did do differently is I cooled the image down considerably. I tend to favor warmer tones for a lot of my stuff.
