Final self-portrait / group photo shoot… Is that a new building in Seattle’s skyline?

It’s done! My final self-portrait ever was taken over the weekend, and it was a big one! I wanted to do something unique and involve a lot of people for this grand finale, and this is what I came up with.

The suggested theme was simple: making a gingerbread house. I just made it a little more epic, by using a photography technique called “forced perspective”. Try to wrap your head around the fact that the house was actually there at Gasworks! If you don’t believe me, I have proof! Click here to see how it was all done.

I had several friends and fans help me with this project, including the people who came out to Gasworks to be in the photo. I can’t thank them enough for volunteering!

I think we pulled it off! How about you?

    This is great! I wish I were in town this past weekend so I could help. I can’t wait to see the “behind the scenes” pics!ReplyCancel

    • That’s okay. I had a pretty decent turn out… just enough props. :) Thanks for the comment!ReplyCancel

    This is amazing! So cool that it wasn’t photoshopped (that’s too easy). :) I know you put in hours of work on this project, especially making the gingerbread house with two separate prototypes. Crazy girl. I think it was all worth it in the end! Way to go out with a bang!ReplyCancel

    • Thanks! Believe it or not, the hardest part was probably making the stand to hold the thing. I’m glad it all turned out so well though. Thanks to you and Mary, that gingerbread house is still standing strong! :)ReplyCancel
