This is a rubberband ball that I started 18 years ago when I broke my arm and couldn't continue my paper route. I put all of my unused rubberbands in a ball and yes, it is solid rubberbands all the way through. It gets a new layer once a year or so. It started out at about 4 inches in diameter and is now at about 8 inches. My kids love it.

My background is an unironed shirt laying on my bed. The only light sorce is a small lamp. I crop, contrast, brightness, and a border.

I've seen a couple other rubber-band shots, but I like this one the best. Good color, shadowing, and composition. 7

I might have liked this more if you had removed the color cast caused by using incandescent light source.

Great Lighting here. The framing of the photo also sets it off. 10
