The Small Hand that Kills (41th/52)

I had the good idea of including the (small) hand of my little girl in this week's shot.


I say good idea but it wasn't really. It turned out much harder than I thought to get to to cooperate (or at least, to cooperate when the time was right). I didn't want her to get the habit to slap people in the face so I just asked her to put her hand on my face (I can manage to make it look like she's slapping me right?).


Anyway, after I failed at having all three elements in the same shot (me looking like I'm getting hit, her small hand slapping me and the nutrios cereals being spat out), I decided to try and combine three shots to make one. I can't say I enjoyed the experience that much. I really prefer to have everything in one shot straight in camera.


By the way, my little girl is an angel and she's not violent at all. And she certainly doesn't have a small hand that kills ;)
