That idea had occurred to me too, but we only had spaghetti hoops in the cupboard (kids getting older I guess).
I'm glad someone did it
The pp on that is really good (far better than the banker I have).
I guess the best shot make it look easy even though it probably wasn't. Your shot is my fav 'Alphabet' posted so far!
ARGH !! Went out yesterday and bought Alphbetti Spaghetti with a very similar idea in mind. I'll think of a different interpretation and see what I can come up with, but love the idea and the way you've executed it. (Might have to have a rethink ....) Nice work.
Thanks Chris. I suggest you try and get the large size if you can. They only had small ones in my local Asda and as I said, there wasn't quite as much sauce as I would have liked. Plus, I fished all the letters out with a fork and arranged them alphabetically so I could see what I had to work with before I started spelling out words and I discovered that there were several letters missing from the small tin.
Thanks Michalene. Studio-type shots were my worst nightmare and I'd never really attempted them before I started doing the 52s last year - I'm far happier outdoors. But after lots of awkward themes and bad weather conditions that didn't really offer any other options I think I'm starting to get the hang of them a little bit better now
Thanks Mandy. I think it would have been easier if I'd had something to use as bg that was matte white, but non-absorbent. The shelves in my bedroom would have fitted the bill, but I'm not 100% sure the sauce wouldn't have left a stain
Week 15 - Sound - and I've gone all Zen! I started off in Google translate and printed the characters off on a sheet of white paper which I then sellotaped to the bathroom wall. Put one hand in front of it and tried lots of different angles before I found one I liked. Then converted it to mono, cleaned up the bg to get rid of most of the shadows and used quite a bit of motion blur on the hand to give the effect of clapping.
Thanks Andy. Photographing the text with the hand felt like the easier option at the time, but seeing your Terminator shot has made me want to make a bit more of an effort learning about layers and composites. I think it may be some time before I even think about attempting something like that though!
