Stripes and Bags

By cattyal  
I'm going to upload this now before I change my mind - one of those evenings where I think something is ok and then reject it.

Following on from comments and mods made yesterday, I've removed pretty much all of the background and just left a few creases and shadows around my feet - othewise I appear to be floating.

As for the bags - they're not my entire collection but close......

Works for me. Glad you decided to upload. Slightly hot camera right, and what looks, to me, like slight light spill camera left, but all minor, and should not detract from a good shot in the first place.

Don't listen to yourself...just upload so we can see Smile
Bertie Bassett's head would look great on this one. I like the little bit of disturbance, i.e. at your feet, in the otherwise clinically clean shot. You know...if your'e not careful you are gonna become a hip worldwide bag (in the nicest sense that is) icon with these fun shots.
Thanks 4 the share Smile Click!

Thanks all Smile

Yep - definitely way off perfect Mike but making progress and I should do better when I allow myself a bit more time. I'll admit to doing this whilst drinking my cup of tea this evening Smile What is really tricky is picking up those bags, firing the remote and chucking said remote in one of the bags and then hitting and holding a position! It was on 10 second timer too but still a bit of a rush.

I think I might have to shift a chest of drawers this weekend - that will enable me to the lights a bit further back.....

Hi Carlos - you appeared whilst I was rabbiting away up there Smile

I seem to be having a problem with 'fuzzy feet' in these shots - no idea why it's just my feet and not my legs as well but hey - it's all part of the challenge!

I have absolutely no problem in becoming a hip baggy icon Smile

Any other hobbies apart from collecting paper bags................!!! I really like the stripes. Be carefull you could end up being known as the Bag Lady.

Oh lots of other hobbies but the bag collection is currently most important Smile

I'm just trying to decide whether to get tights, stockings or knee highs in black and/or green/pink neon stripes. Any opinions out there - tights or stockings?

Stocking for me but then again I do like the stripy leggings.

Tricky choice - I've a nasty feeling I'll end up with buying both! It would be nice if I could find a source in town but I fear I'll be buying online tonight....

I'll see what I can find Roy Smile

Then again if you go back to the hessian backed shot of the other day I've just had a quick cheat (see mods) - not quite the same as the real thing though.....
