Today’s The Daily Shoot’s assignment is: “Make a photograph of something shiny or glossy, but not transparent. Emphasize the effect of the surface.”
I decided today to actually do a Daily Shoot since it’s been like…forever since I’ve done one! Rocket…Pen! Yes, this is actually a pen in the shape of a rocket. The fuselage (which is the actual pen) lifts off the base (aka..the cap). I decided to play around a bit with the borders as well.
Okay, technical junk:
Borders were added by extending the canvas (6 times), first the sides (equal to what I would be adding to the top/bottom) using black as the colour (each side one at a time). Next, I added a small white line to the top and bottom (again, each one at a time) then redid the top and bottom using black as the colour and a much larger increase to the canvas. Sure hope that made sense! Hahaha, I am sure there might be an easier way to do this, but hey…it’s my first time!
