Day 212 - Parachuting

First off, some exciting news! I was voted as Best Photography Blog over at For the Love of Blogs! Thank you, everyone for voting!

Now on to my picture of the day...


I know this picture has quite a few flaws but I am only posting it because I hadn't taken a picture of anything else today. My brother had an idea to give all the kids at church a parachute man and then take a picture of a bunch of all the parachute guys floating down from the sky as part of a promotion he was doing at church. Well, they weren't able to get all the parachute guys like they wanted and gave the kids other toys instead. So, I had someone stand upstairs and repeatedly throw down the same parachute guy while I snapped pictures. I then combined them all into one picture. Time consuming edits, let me tell ya! So, this is the best I could get for 10:00 at night.

Here is the original SOOC photo I started with:

I think it's a fun image-and wouldn't have known you were combining-except from you.

What a cool idea! And I can see how it would be time-consuming. I wouldn't have known that's what you did if you hadn't "confessed!"

Kara said...

Very cool! I thought they were real at first. Good thing I continued reading. :) What a great idea! I'm fresh out of ideas. Good thing we had a lightening storm last night, but that doesn't help for the 3 days I am behind. LOL
