Challenge: Paper II (Advanced Editing VII)
Collection: Portfolio
Camera: Canon EOS-6D
Lens: Canon EF 24-105mm f/4.0L IS
Date: Feb 18, 2014
Aperture: f/16
ISO: 200
Shutter: 1/80
Date Uploaded: Feb 18, 2014

I'm not sure how I feel about this image. While my idea was quite clear going into it, the image developed quite a bit and became something I wasn't expecting... I'm not sure if I love it or hate it now. Either way, it's my first in a series of environmental/ecology based pictures that I'm excited to start.


I figured it would be too dark or too eccentric or too "something" for DPC, but I'm extremely pleased! It took many hours of taping and several to shoot as well. Hidden inside that newspaper suit is my friend Laura, so thanks to her as well for her patience. And thanks so much for the great comments, votes and faves!!!

Totally fantastic. What symbolism. Look at all the effort you put into this too. I'm excited for you that an idea you had evolved into something bigger. I hope you like it now too. Congrats on the blue! :)

Your picture beats the MoMa Guggenheim dollar exhibit ' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/1000-1999/1400/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_959239.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/1000-1999/1400/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_959239.jpg', '/') + 1) . '. Never be afraid of "too dark, too excentric or too "somethng" for DPC
You don't post here for a client to buy, and even so ....

My living room looked like a psycho kill room for a few days, but luckily I used the set for some other images...

Wow, a lot of Orkney for an image. Very creative. Looks like another idea in this challenge. Would like to see a little more light on the person.

:-) Have to give you a big 'A' (9) for effort alone!!! Would have gone 10 if that yellow in the upper left didn't keep distracting me.

Good golly! You went to a bunch of work!

I love the room... not fond of the person being all paper, too... I think it would have been fun to make the lower half paper and then gently merge to a "sign of the times" person up at the top.

But, that's just one opinion. :D
