(Day 289) - Hold That Pose

CJ and I wanted to give a behind the scenes look at how the last two Paperclip Family photos were set up. Mounting putty and spaghetti sticks were used to keep them in pose, which I then removed in Photoshop.

Spaghetti sticks? Yeah! I'll probably get some normal stands if I ever find some but, in the meantime, I'll use pretty much anything to balance my little friends. ๐Ÿ˜

My upcoming photo book will also have a brief behind the scenes of one of my Paperclip photos. I hope it proves inspiring to others with how photos like these are created. ๐Ÿ“Ž
It is always great to see the "how to" portion of your creativity! You have such fabulous talent!

@30pics4jackiesdiamond - Thank you so much Jackie!! This one did take a while but was fun so the time just flew by. Oh wow a youtube channel, I've mulled in over before. Maybe one day...as long as I get help from CJ. ๐Ÿ˜†

@monikozi - Wow, thank you so such incredibly encouraging words!! I really enjoy your style as well. I'm grateful to all the photographers who have shared their knowledge with me in books, videos, 365, and in real life. It such a great feeling to see someone inspired by my work and then become even more creative themselves. :)
