Two of Swords

Two of Swords

Working on the last several tarot cards that I’ve shot that I hadn’t had a chance to post. This should take me up to 51. Only 17 more to go.

    Great shot, reminds me of early Elektra, drawn by Frank Miller, not that gruesome movie!

    hmm, funny that when mav ask me what the photo (un-shopped) said to me, I said peace. maybe the lens flairs, etc., distract, because they distract from her expression (my assessment was largely based on that).

    Yay for 17…as I keep telling you (and you not believing : /), I can’t wait till you’re done (put my order in!!!!!!)

    @shbnggrth: actually, I did this earlier shot of Damsel a while back and it’s one of the ones that made me start thinking of doing the Tarot deck in the first place. But I specifically had Miller’s Elektra in mind when I did it.

    @spresogna: thanks. There are a few things. Part was the look on her face, and although its a little cheesy, and subtle, the other part was the stance she’s in. She’s meant to look like a peace sign.

    @MegaBee: works for me.

    @☼ Helder: heheh…

    @beststephi: actually, that was a typo. There are 27 left. thanks. I was kinda worried that people would be kinda iffy on the cards where I don’t use actual swords.

    This is rad, I really just love the whole tarot deck idea and the way you pull these shots off so brilliantly.

    @like_shipwrecks: thanks. I’m glad you like them. I like this one, but there’s still some I want to redo because they’re not quite right.
