How I did it!

For those wondering how I did my picture, I took another picture from farther away so that it might make more sense. :)
I put my paint in a pyramid, but had to keep the bottom row pushed between 2 pieces of wood I have sitting around. The other 3 paint cans I had laying on the ground (there are only 2 in this picture.) The way the sun was shining caused my shadow to be cast over the paint cans when I took it (for the challenge) and so it looks like a dark background. I stood directly over the setup and looked down at it.
Does this make more sense?

Yes, yes,yes,Now I see how you did it...very creative! Thanks for showing us how you did the set up.

Yes, thanks for sharing that, Rachel! I really was wondering how you got them to stay in a pyramid. I mean, I knew you had to have them propped someway, but those pieces of wood weren't visible, so I was wondering what your trick was! I think that you put the three at the top upside down really made the picture super dynamic. A lot of people ( ME ) would have probably just stacked the pyramid and taken a picture or that... Or just take a picture of them standing up... BORING!!!


GReat Job..

P.s.... I wrote a shout-out to you on my blog earlier... I hope I didn't freak YOU out by talking non-stop. I was thinking about that when we got off... I am such a motor mouth sometimes! Sorry bout that! :)

Isn't it cool how sometimes the photo doesn't even resemble the real life? Awesome job!

THANK YOU! That was driving me crazy! Way to make the blacks a true black in your original, especially with the background you had to work with.
