Behind The Scenes: Cozy

For the 28th round of the Photography Scavenger Hunt I went a bit further and made all my own props.  This is a behind the scenes look at how I made the image for the word "Cozy".

This was a hard word to come up with ideas for.  I had nothing for the longest time.  Then I decided to just go with Fat Thor, dressed in his bathrobe, drinking a beer (the nectar of the Norse gods) while looking out a window at a sunrise.

This is the image:

The first step was to make the background.  I used foam and craft paints to make the wall, and a floor tile for the floor.   This is a fairly involved process, but its basically draw in the brick, and cut out the window.  

I used a couple Lume Cubes on a Platypod and some gooseneck arms to make the morning light.  Most was done practically, with just a few minor adjustments in Photoshop.

This was one of the most straightforward shots this round.
