Scavenger Hunt #37 – Keyhole

A wooden manikin seemingly spying at something through a keyhole, processed with vignetting, grain and blue tones.

For the Scavenger Hunt #37, I revisited the theme I had used in Scavenger Hunt #32 – the wooden manikins are back!

For “Keyhole”, I knew fairly early that I wanted to do something about looking through a keyhole. Before I committed to going for a manikin theme again, I was thinking of using a keyhole as a frame for something (not hugely original, but working with what I have). Instead, I went for the “spying” theme.

The challenge was to get the manikin at the “right” height with the “right” pose in front of the door – that took a bit of creative posing on top of a chair’s back, but eventually I managed to get a shot I could work with.

I went for a “noir-themed” processing – cold tones, strong vignetting and grain – and I’m quite happy with the final picture.
