(Y) We kept going back and forth between tied and not tied after the poll was supposed to be closed. It was just my first try anyway. Good theme pick by the way. I was just shooting some shadow pics the other day. I'll have to try to get a good one and make sure I have no competition this time! :laugh:

I did try something this weekend but I wasn't happy with the outcome, I'll try again but I think I may have to come up with something new.

Too much football to take pictures. I should have taken a time lapse of the shadow of me on my couch, hahaha.

Im close to giving up on this month, no matter what I try, what is in my head is not showing in the photo :(

 

I don't think this helps with lack of things like flashes or softboxes which most of my ideas would be infinitely easier if I owned. I'll keep try and keep thinking but I don't think i'll make this one

It was raining, short of fludding, on my side this weekend.... so getting out was a no go ;(

 

Could have maybe done a few shadows in doors... but my flat isn't big enough for anything special...

 

Hope to still have something this month before the closing date ;)
