Strut Your Stuff!

For this challenge I really wanted to capture the feeling of movement. I like the idea of making a "freeze frame picture" as if it's a still from a music video or something. This photo was a pain because of my daughter's hair flying in all directions, but also that's what makes it great. She was prancing around when I was taking photos of her one day.

CSI #3

Strut Your Stuff
I've used "instructions" as my journaling and also in the style of second-person point-of-view for "testimony." That was a great idea from CSI and it worked out well for this photo and concept. I also used circular elements (gold balls, and some swirls making loops), and gold metallic elements for the "evidence"

Original photo:

digital items include:
• Several CU items (flowers, background stuff)
• Carnevale studio mix 14 by artists Lorie Davison and SussieM (all the gold stuff, ribbons, feathers)
• Pink Lotty's "Marie Antoinette" kit (bows, paper)
• most items recolored for this palette: floor (growing gray), flowers (cream and dusty pink), background and t-shirt (lilac), ribbons and feathers (tea leaves brown)
• I used some free-hand painting to make some atmosphere and added lighting and shadows.

Thanks for looking!
