A Spoonful of Color

I'm easily attracted to colorful things. 8D

It's just a spoon on a piece of colorful paper. (Same paper I used for the shot that is my profile pic: http://365project.org/myautofocuslife/365/2012-01-01 ) This isn't something terribly new. Other 365ers have taken similar shots using a spoon and the reflection of different materials on it such as paper, wood, etc. It looked fun, so I thought I'd try it. You do need a really clean and shiny spoon if you want to get really close. Otherwise every little dust mote will show up!
Wow that is so cool! Very nicely done Livia, Love it! :)

I love it. Great idea xx

This came out well. at first, I wondered if you cloned out the handle, but I see now that the handle is going away from us in the pic, therefore not visible. Very bright and pretty shot!

Livia, this is so much fun! Great use of reflection in this photo! Congrats on your bat photo. It was marvelous. Sorry I'm a little slow at commenting this week. I am on holiday.
posted April 10th, 2012  
Wow, Livia, that is just so cool. Wonder if I have some paper to try this. It came out great. Where is the handle to the spoon? Fav
posted April 10th, 2012  
@darsphotos The handle is right there but you can't see it because it's directly behind the "bowl" of the spoon. 8)
posted April 10th, 2012  
great idea for a spoon reflection! it looks like it's endless!
posted April 10th, 2012  
@myautofocuslife I am a little lost on this one, Livia as I thought that the handle would be to the side. Will try to do this one at home and see what you mean. So interesting and fascinating. Thank you for getting back to me.
posted April 10th, 2012  
I love the colors! Fantastic shot! the pattern is so interesting in the spoon!
posted April 10th, 2012  
@darsphotos It's behind, because this is the underside of the spoon you're seeing. 8)
posted April 10th, 2012  
But still it's creative! Well Done Livia! =D
posted April 10th, 2012  
I think I have got it as you must have used a ladle. Most of my spoons are pewter so not shiny. I will have to see what I can find to use.
posted April 10th, 2012  
Love it Livia !!
posted April 10th, 2012  
@darsphotos It was a stainless steel spoon, not a ladle. But a ladle would work too!
posted April 10th, 2012  
Love it! Great idea and very colorful!
