Week 11: 52 Week Creative Photo Challenge

The challenge for Week 11 was to create a GOBO (an object that "goes between" the light and the subject--see the theory and a DIY version here) to add drama, depth and interesting shadows to the images. The lovely Aaryn was my model for Week 11, and she was quite patient with the rearranging and slight adjustments necessary for this shoot. For my GOBO, I used some palm fronds from my front yard to create a striped shadow effect. I increased the contrast between light and dark in post processing, but the shadows are cast from the palm fronds attached to a lightstand with a clamp.
