    Had to shoot a still life from directly above and show a social connotation....

    Here's what I came up with:

    Not bad, not a fan of the lighting though. Shadows are two strong. Less directional light - but it's all subjective.

    I dont really like it but I dont know what I would like either :hs: This isnt my thing. Ill say that I think the drug thing is played out and that having that line bifurcate the entire frame is distracting.

    its a fake prescription thing, I dl'ed it off the internets and then wrinkled it up to look real...

    looks like I got that right...

    The name on the prescription is Patrick Bateman...

    But yeah, I am out of ideas for this crap. It's not really my thing either. I figured i'd do the drug thing cuz I just broke my ankle and taking vicodin sorta makes me feel like i'm doing something wrong...

    But i'm stuck for creativity here, and I think it shows...

    FWIW, the lighting is the only thing I did like about the shot.. :hsugh:

    :yum:

    oh, and work on a different angle. I don't like the colored pills. I'm not sure I'd want to snort those.

    and that's a big fucking line.

    can't work on an angle... The shot has to be from directly above... Thats the part that's fucking me up!

    The lighting is just too centralized for my liking. It feels like its not spread through the whole scene.

    the picture is just too setup....perhaps if it was taken in a depressing background, like on a wooden but dirty table, you could pull it off, but its too staged and too normal.

    The line looks too clean, maybe a razor next to it with some residue would've helped as well...

    :dunno: just some thoughts..
