Photography Scavenger Hunt Round 29: Metal

 The 29th round of the Photography Scavenger Hunt brought some interesting limitations:  no Photoshop.  None.  Every image must be straight out of camera.  For someone as Photoshop heavy as me that presented some interesting challenges.  It meant I had to build my worlds in real life, instead of in Photoshop.

This is how I built the world for the word "metal."

This was actually the easiest shot I did this round.  The concept I had right away was someone throwing up the horns: the classic rock and roll symbol anyone who has been to a rock concert knows intimately.  I had a Deadpool figure that came with his hand in that pose, so it was simply a matter of setting him up in front of a background and shooting him.

This is the straight from camera shot I submitted to the hunt:

This is the image after I processed it:
