How I Did It



Artist
: Morgan Kendall, of mkendall
Photograph Location: Atlanta, GA
How I took the shot: This piece is part of my cardboard series. I took regular cardboard and cut objects out of it, in this case a moon and stars. I then tacked the pieces onto a blank wall in my studio and made a little lasso out of some string. Once I got a shot I was happy with using the self timer, I worked on it in photoshop. I overlayed a photo I shot of clouds and a few textures from my library. I really liked doing this series because you, the artist, are actually creating the entire scene. You're only limited by your imagination.

I think Morgan has a fascinating way of looking at the world and I really like knowing a little bit more about her philosophy and techniques in this photo. Cool!
