The theme of “Up” leaves quite a bit open to the imagination so in these types of instances I try to look for opportunities that will give me a unique, or at the very least an off the wall take on the theme. It just so happens that I was able to gain access to a building overlooking the Gallivan Center Ice Rink in downtown Salt Lake City around sunset so I could grab this shot in some nice light.
We were here for my wifes work party, they had reserved the ice rink for a few hours for family and friends with plenty of warm food and hot chocolate on hand to keep you cozy and fueled up for the wobbly, sometimes bruising laps around the ice.
I wanted to make the skaters look like toy figures so I used photoshop to simulate a “Tilt Shift” type of effect making them look even smaller than they actually are.
Here’s another angle…
Thanks for coming along on this little adventure with me once again. Next post will be all about “Down” so look for that soon as I catch up on blog posts.
PS: Hey this is my 100th post! Yay for me…I feel like I should have a giveaway or something, maybe a free print…Any ideas?
