This was my shot for the "FACE" category of the Chrysta Rae Photo Scavenger Hunt.

Apart from the obvious use of face cards, this image is all about the faces. In the cards, the queen seems to look toward the king and he looks away. In the reflection, he looks in her direction as she looks away.

The cards are gold metallic on a white board, illuminated with colored lights. I taped the cards to the flexible board with loops of tape, which allowed me to shift and warp the whole scene until I got the reflections and hues just right. I do a lot with playing cards in my photography because I make solitaire games professionally, so cards are sort of my thing. It's always fun to find a new way to capture something so timeless.

  1. It's really great! I love the way you used the colored lights! I had no idea that you make solitaire games professionally. That's so interesting! I play solitaire every single day and have done so for years. Have you developed an app or is it something else?
