Placement of object


Would you please look at my entry today Pretzel and a Pepsi.

If I take this image again with the (Pepsi can) where would you recommend I put the Pepsi can to get the most impact out of the shot?

I was thinking of her feet but please give me your idea's.

  Interesting shot! What about placing the Pepsi can in the crook of her left arm?

  How on earth can she do that? Might be cute if she held the can with her feet?

  I think I babysit again next week so I get her back in that pose and try the feet and crook of her left arm.

Thank you for your replies CT and Linda.

Linda I don't know how she gets in that position it makes me hurt all over just looking at her.

OUCH...Kerby

  Hi Kerby - Your model could strike her pose sitting up (against a wall or in a bean bag for balance, perhaps), and actually be drinking her Pepsi. :o) Robyn

  Robyn I am not sure I can get her sitting up in that position. But she gets into the position so easily like it nothing.

I be in the hospital for a month if I did it.

The human body is not suppose to go in that position. LOL...

I may try that position because it sound really cute.

A friend brought me a MT. Dew towel and I may try putting her on that and getting a MT. Dew can. I can go down the Pepsi plant store and get a Pepsi towel or blanket and do the Pepsi can one again too.

Thank you Robyn for your reply.

Nicole Kessel   Do they still make really long crazy straws? You could sit it on the floor and have her drinking through the straw. LOL, Oh I remember the days of being young and flexible! :) Cute idea, Kerby.

  My thoughts:
What do you want to achieve/say by having the Pepsi can in the picture? Furthermore, what can be done with her pose to make it even more dramatic?

I like your idea of the towels in the background. Maybe you could take the idea even further by incorporating the drink, the pose and towels into a combined theme and compose a scene around them. Your model can no doubt have her legs around her head even when her back is not flat on the ground.
