|36/365 Circles - The Best Kind|
While the bread was rising, and the cookies were cooling, I set up the shot for today's prompt. I had to make a lens cover and finding black construction paper in an adult household was not going to happen. Luckily, I found a black folder that worked perfectly. The lights I thought of first was to use a small Christmas tree that we had on the porch for a background, but it was apparent that it was a tree in the shots. I then took out the set of lights from a painted wine bottle that a friend had made for me and they were red which made it even better and draped them over a red poster board. I used a tripod to set up the shot and changed the distance between my camera, subject and the lights to get the best effect. I thought the mice were too big and I had no small figurines, so I used the red heart from earlier this week. It was tricky getting it to stand up, but with tape and then post processing in Photoshop Elements, I was able to clone out the tape. Then had to clean up that set up along with my cooking mess, it was a busy afternoon.
