my problem is how to deal with the moon! my orginal idea was to construct a 3d moon and cover it in silver glitter, place it in front of a chair and have ruth sit on the chair, giving the impression she is sat on the glittery moon! much like the old moon souvenir photo below. however, i didn't really think what i would make this moon out of? i can't seem to find any card that is big enough and the construction would be too weak out of normal card anyway. carboard from a cardboard box is too small.
however i saw this picture (top below) recently by mmu photography graduate india hobson, and thought the use of shining a light from behind the model gave the impression of a moon. i am thinking of doing this instead? shining a light from behind the backdrop behind ruth's head so it appears like a halo/moon.
what do you think? plus not constructing a moon puts less pressure on me to make more things.
let me know your thoughts
