Hey, Cheer Up by kentnek Hey, Cheer Up by kentnek

Happy Valentine's Day, everyone!

~~~

Inspired by this story: The Perfect Heart :heart: I'm quite sure many people have read this wonderful story :crying:

~~~

Last night, I looked at the wishes posted on FB for Valentine's Day :heart: and wondered what I could possibly make. While searching through the mess on my table (k i should clean this soon :blush:), I suddenly noticed the red heart standing out on an ace of hearts. After thirty minutes I came up with this idea, so on the next day I went to a DIY shop to buy some aluminum wire and a pair of pliers (huh why didn't I have this ready at home :o )

For this picture I used a DIY softbox, a flashgun and a piece of pink acrylic sheet, which was placed on the top to create some pinkish glow.

Here's my set-up for those who are curious :D
