As you can see, the egg and the mirror have reflections, which I don’t want so I’ll have to edit these out in photoshop.
Here are the objects for my photoshoot, I just need to buy the rose.

- I bought the hair from a beauty supply shop. (It’s real human hair- as opposed to synthetic)
- The axe is my Dad’s (was my Grandad’s) and is at least 30 years old, which I love because the years of wear & tear make it look more authentic.
The other students & I discussed the possibility of creating a digital catalogue. The class agreed that this would be a good idea as it would look professional, would be more stimulating to use, would reach a wider audience and wouldn’t cost us anything to produce.
Here is an example of a digital publication- ACHE magazine, hosted on ISSUU: http://issuu.com/achemagazine/docs/january2013
I came across this idea on Pinterest a while ago and I would love to try it with my photos. This would meet my desire for having hand crafted artefacts.
