June Photo Challenge - Day 11

I was glad that today’s challenge – silhouette – coincided with the Re:Play event at the Winnipeg Art Gallery. I knew exactly what I wanted to do for my photo even before we arrived.

The concept was simple; I just had to get the mascot to stand in front of one of Mr Ghosty’s video screens so that I could get a nice, back-lit shot of the boy in profile. Easy, peasy!

The picture turned out exactly as I had envisioned, and even lent itself to a little image-manipulation in Photoshop. With this effect, it’s a modern take on the old-fashioned cameo.
