The Violin Sensation by Vissyscrafts The Violin Sensation by Vissyscrafts
Finally, it's finally finished!!! Took me about 3 weeks!

The violin is made from paper! I can't wind the threads to the tuner.... ^^; Although they have to be winded to the tuner actually...since I can't, so I just glued them.

Anyway, it's so hard to make it, there are about 200 parts... argh... but the result is great at least!

Hey!

You wanted me to give you a critique for this one.
As I tell everyone I do a critique for: don't mind the stars, they don't teach you anything.

Photographically:
I'm not familar with you camera, but I'm guessing you don't have much manualcontrol over the settings.
So I'll go over to goes into composition instead, since this is what I think you'll learn the most from.
When it comes to this spesific image you've got patterns in form of the spreadsheets, this is a fantastic background for an instrument like this. This shows me that you clearly have a vision for what you wanted to create.
Do be careful though with adding to much props into your image. Personally I think I'd not use the box with the necklace, but you could use the necklace. This will come down to a personalopinionlevel very fast, so I won't be to spesific about this. Just think about the fact that you don't want to crowd your images with stuff when telling a story.

Post-Processing:

I see that you're using Photoshop, this is good, because then I know I can give you some direct tips on how to improve this image without messing with it's integrety.
For me this image needs a boost in contrast, do note that I'm speaking of a very subtle increase. What you'll achieve is that you'll give your image a little extra pop.
Also I would Increase the sharpness of the violin and flowers.
And finally I'd add a very subtle vignette to the image to give you a stronger and more direct centre.

Summary:
I've done this myself only with a guitar when I started out. It's good practise, because you'll increase the value of details. I'll give you a youtube video as well, so you'll get some good advices to apply to your photography in the future. This is a video from a seminar Scott Kelby did on composition [link] .

Keep doing what you are doing, experiment and have fun. You'll get so much further if you're having fun while learning :)

Hope this was helpful :)

How did you put this together? Did you employ glue on the entire thing?
