Martini Memory

Have you ever had some crazy idea for a photo and then realized it might not be as difficult to pull off as you thought?  Something just off the wall, not really something that would ever grow into anything other than “just for fun of it”?  No project, no marketing, no commercialization, no selling, no limited prints, nothing like that at all…

In case you couldn’t tell, I had one of those moments a while back, and finally decided to pull the trigger trip the shutter!  Here’s the small version of my Martini Memory!  There are, of course, a few versions, of it, but this one was probably the one that first jumped off the screen at me.


Martini Memory

It’s certainly not going to win any awards, but sure was fun to put it together and just see how it came out!  This is the kind of creativity that makes photography so awesome!  So, what about your own zany crazy ideas?  Anyone else have any they’d like to share?  Feel free to link your own images in the comments.  Who knows… this could turn into a contest if there’s enough participation.  Wanna win something?  Share your ideas!  Spread the word – because we all learn best from a community of sharing!

Speaking of sharing, winning, and contests, don’t forget the OnOne Software Plugin Suite 4.5 giveaway.  There are officially 7 days left to enter, so if you’ve been laying in wait to get those images in for consideration, now is the time to start posting them.  I’ll be collating the 10-12 best ones off the Flickr thread to post into a dedicated gallery here on the blog, then passing things over to the folks at OnOne for their thoughts on a winner.  If you want to be considered, time’s a-wasting!  Link to the contest thread on Flickr is here:  Numbers Contest

Happy Friday and Happy Shooting all – this is the last weekend to get a shot for contributing to the contest, so get out there and good luck to everyone!

    I’ve got a crazy one that’s taking time to assemble. It involves squirrel puppets, a bottle of gin, a Route 66 ash tray, and a few other odd items……You wouldn’t know how to fake a mountain lion paw print, would ya?

    My one comment on the martini shot…… No olives?

      Let me get back to you on that…I think the blur tool may have some possibilities! 🙂

    Was your memory martini shaken or stirred?
    What lighting set up do you use for this effect?
