I printed the board with my laser printer and enlarged it to 140% with a photocopier. Then, I pasted the board onto a manila card. Carefully, I placed two spray can covers beneath the board, provided just enough balance to hide them and at the same time created the illusion as though the board was floating in mid-air.|
After that, deliberately, I positioned the eye balls one bye one.
The soft and diffused light from windows provided such wonderful lighting, the shadows have added depth to the shot. I set the timer and shot my left hand first then the right. Using the shot with the shadows on the board of my right hand and I pasted the other in Photoshop. Believe me, the shooting sounded easier than done.
Total time 6 hours.
