Y’all are going to start thinking I’m totally lazy (worse, with that y’all there, you might start thinking I’m lazy AND country!) 🙂 Anywhoooo, it’s been another sort of crazy week in the life of Lou. I originally had planned on doing my best photographic imitation of Jan Vermeer’s “Girl With a Pearl Earring“. However, I just couldn’t pull that off. Having just taken inspiration from Warhol in my last Photo Friday entry, I thought it would be fairly simple to do my best photographic imitation of one of HIS most simplistic works, his iconic Campbell’s Tomato Soup Can:
It wasn’t as easy as I thought it would be! I originally took about 20 photographs. Then I attempted some digital manipulation in order to really whiten the background and to eliminate all the shadows. That turned out to be wayyyyy more difficult than I had thought. So I abandoned that and thought I’d try my best to recreate it with a pure photograph. Another 30 or so pictures later, and this is the best I could do.
I think I’ll still keep “Girl” in mind for another photographic project in the future. I have the perfect model, BUT the earrings I had thought I’d use I can’t find. I think maybe I sold them at one of the last garage sales (boot sales for Jan) I participated in. So, while I look like I’ve been very lazy with this project, I actually worked pretty hard on it!
I’m very excited to see what fab stuff the others have put together!!
Please check out the other participants’ work!
Jan, the brilliant Photo Friday mastermind, has given me the opportunity to pick next week’s challenge. Pending her approval of the subject, my choice is “Juxtaposition”.
