Guitar Man

By cattyal  
Just chillin' on a Sunday afternoon - well Woody was. Shame he can't afford as posh as guitar as the one he's sat on but he will just have to make do with his cheapie.

I ask you - just how hard can it be to set this picture up? First Woody just won't sit still - double sided tape saw to that! The guitar was leaning backwards - a cushion saw to that. Everything was reflecting - hooray for black velvet. The decent light has gone - arrrrrgh! I bumped the exposure up a stop on the pc to help compensate - hopefully that has done the trick. Oh yes and now I have three sets of dead batteries so I had to root out the mains cable for the camera.

I'm going to have a rest now!

Woody is very lucky to have you, & visa versa I think!!!
Well worth all the problems you had Alison.
That is one fantastic guitar that Woody is sitting on...his isn't too bad either, musn't upset him.
He looks very cute sat there, could this be the 4th Beatle???
A wonderful image...well done.

Hello and thank you everyone!

I think it was indeed worth the faffing about with this shot - I'd been waiting all week to set this up as I wanted natural light which of course was dull as ditchwater today!

The mini guitar came from a supplier of dolls house items - a lot of them are just about the right size for him so they come in handy. I just know I have a mini saxaphone somewhere in this house but do you think I can find it? Of course not!

If anyone is feeling brave I'm posting a picture in the mods just to show the indignity that I'm putting him through now - I'll explain there. Be warned - it's not a pretty sight!

A LISON for us all to relax. ACHORDing to a saying, all work and no PLAY makes a dull person and is INSTRUMENTal in bringing muCHILLness.
I like the way you STRUNG this together.
The mod is hilarious.
