So, I could not resist shooting my Valentine’s pictures today! Love this one?
How did I create this photo?
misfits guessed that I used stirrers.vbk70 guessed the indirect light.AlliD finally guessed that I hold them in my hand against the light.
valentine, love, hearts, red, plastic

Looks like a pipe/straw/ cigarette was used as a background to the hearts.
I love this one too :O)
thanks, Chris! Just playing ;)
Are they little swizzlers for drinks? Looks like a tapered candle or rolled up paper used to support them for the shot?
no, they didn’t need support
Swizzle sticks rather, stirrers for cocktails etc?
yes, they are used to stir drinks, so I suppose they are stirrers ;)
Great shot. Is it a light built in the wall behind the hearts?
Right, the light is built in the wall! It’s what we call indirect room lighting. Now where were the sticks?
The sticks were in front of the camera?
yes, but how, floating in the air?
Someone was holding the sticks up for you, so they would be in front of the light. Hmmmmmm, one stick – one drink? Looks like you were having a great time :)
you are close, but not yet right!
