Key, Literally


I chose to shoot the most literal and obvious take on the challenge. I put the key on my big black suitcase to get this background. I took several pictures and uploaded them before realizing that there was a microscopic little spec on the suitcase that looked huge on each of the pictures, so I had to wipe it off and take more shots! Close-ups are kinda interesting that way.

ISO 100
F2.8
1/14 sec.
Natural light
SOOC, except for cropping

dang it to bits! You beat me to it... i was totally going to do a basic KEY for mine too!! This is great! I'm loving the texture of the suitcase as the surface, especially against the sleek, shiny key!!! I also think where the key is positioned is soooo great, not perfectly centered... well done!!!!!

I agree...I like the positioning--and I think it was so creative to put it on a suitcase! I think that's PERFECT! Way to think outside the box on the setup!
