Photo Hunter: Red


The Photohunter theme this week is red. I decided to feature my sunburst guitar which was harder than I thought it would be because it was like a mirror.I kind of like the way it not only reflected me taking its picture but it also captured my acoustic guitar. What I didn't like was that it wasn't true to the guitar's color when it had a reflection inside of it. I finally figured out that the best place to photograph my sunburst guitar was in the bathroom.Even in the bathroom it still has a little bit of a reflection, but not so much as when I photographed it in natural light in my living room.There is almost no reflection when I photographed the front of the guitar in my bathroom. It occurred to me that what I should do for this post is to paint the town red. I fear that even if I still had it in me to paint the town red, I wouldn't want to document myself doing it.

You can find other Saturday photohunters at the links below. I probably won't be able to visit until the end of the weekend because I have a house guest. I'm also not sure if I'll get to my computer to post the mine is up on TNchick's site, but I'll visit when I can. I hope everyone has a great weekend.

Reading everyones comments I think you should do a self portrait picture in the guitar- center yourself and see you can reach your arms somehow that it doesn't show the camera when you snap it.

I like the idea of painting the town red! I say go for it!

We have lots of guitars here in Adelaide this week with a large guitar festival. Last night it was slide guitars. Beautiful shots of your guitar.

Carver said...

Thanks so much to everyone for visiting and commenting. To answer about how long I've played guitar, I've messed around with it since I was a teenager. I hesitate to put that into years since I have been very on and off with it and am not particularly good. I can back myself up with guitar when I sing. I hope everyone has a great week.

SnoopyTheGoon said...

Great shots all, and have a great week!
