Photography Scavenger Hunt Round 31: Teal

 The 31st round of the Photography Scavenger Hunt is upon us.  This is my entry for the word "teal" 

Teal is a colour.  There is often a colour word in each round of the hunt, so I expected there to be one in this round.  Teal, however, isn't exactly in my normal creative colour palette, so I had trouble coming up with ideas for it.

Tea was also a hunt word this round, and my only thought was "Teal is just tea with an L".  This would become important when I was actually shooting my tea shot.

As I was shooting it, I thought I should just do the tea+l thing.  The idea that came to mind was making a Mrs Nesbitt Tea logo that was painted onto a brick wall - think of those old Coke signs painted on ye-olde shoppes - and having a character spray painting on an L.

So as I was shooting my tea shot, I also posed Buzz Lightyear to look like a spokes-spaceman for Mrs Nesbitts Tea.

I then took that image and processed it to look like a logo that was painted onto a brick wall.  Then I projected the image onto a TV screen and posed Deadpool with a spray can.

After that it was some basic comp work, and adding in some paint splatters.  The final result is here.
