Day 342: Seams
The goal with today’s shot was to start a collection of phone-themed shots, with this one marking the start and style: http://www.flickr.com/photos/80228634@N03/9427016310/ Unfortunately, duplicating lighting/style is tricky, especially when dealing with filters and such in post. In the end, this one just needed a little more light, I think, as the hand/phone ended up being brighter than I wanted and the shoes being almost invisible. I may try a reshoot once the 365 is done, to finish my “phone” collection as intended. But I’ll keep trudging re trying to find that lighting/post processing balance for recreating feel/style.
