Shelled Out

Active Assignment Weekly: Mar 9th - Mar 17th, 2010

 

ASSIGNMENT

Deconstruction

 

DESCRIPTION

For the literal-minded, think parts of a whole. For the literary-minded, you could probably interpret this any way you like. ;)

 

RESTRICTIONS

No collages, but multiple frames within a single capture are ok - see example.

 

DARE

None.

 

WIT: For this shot I visited my neighbor who is an avid hunter. He reloads many of his own shotgun shells and conveniently had all the ingredients needed for this image. The most difficult part of the setup was getting the BBs to stay in one place. To hold them in ono spot and allow for some stacking I cut a piece of black electrical tape and stuck the bottom layer of BBs to it. In post I cropped, cloned out a number of dust specks, added and tweaked a levels adjustment layer, and did some slight modification of the saturation of the red shell.
