Ben's teacher was asking for families to donate any paper they might have for an origami project. When I went to my paper stash, one thing led to another and, voila! An experiment erupted. I know, you're surprised.
UPDATED: The experiment continues, thanks to Kim! She recommended a crop more in keeping with the rule of thirds. I would agree from a composition standpoint. My attention was more on the focus (learned that focusing in a shadowed area can be problematic!), and also exposure (the original was a bit washed out, so I bumped up the saturation and sharpness a little as long as I was in there editing). What I loved the most about this shot was the depth of field. With all the different "faces" and "points" of the origami, there was such great variation in the focused and blurred areas. I thought I lost a bit of this in the crop, but I still like the results. Thanks, Kim!
