Poker with an Unseen Devil

Poker with an Unseen Devil

So here's the story behind this one. I was listening to some OAR and the song "That was a Crazy Game of Poker" came on. If you don't know it, it's a song about playing poker with the devil. The more recent editions of the song have more to it that explains more of the story than the original lyrics which only reference the devil vaguely. Anyways, so it gave me this idea for a shot of me playing poker with the devil (hence the red-ish tint in the photo). I took the idea a bit further and made a subtle choice of which cards to use. Although this isn't a good poker hand, the hand is my life really. Here's my meaning behind it: The king of hearts on top is for me, because when you get to know me, I have a big heart. The 6 is for my dad, because it's his hockey number and I chose clubs because well, its hockey you use a stick. The queen of hearts is for the ladies I care about most, because I care about them so (not saying who I had in mind, but maybe she'll find out one day). The 7 of spades is for good luck, because 7 is my lucky number. And lastly, the Ace of Spades is for thanks for all of the armed forces fighting right now. Logic: see the helmet in a little film called Full Metal Jacket. So, while it might not be the best poker hand, as said by Randy Pausch, "We cannot change the cards we are dealt, only how we play the hand."

So now that you know the story of why I composed the shot this way, here's how I did it. I set my camera up on a tripod and used the built in 10sec timer. A-Priority at f/1.8 using my new 50mm lens. I used manual focus at about the 4 foot mark and just took trial and error photos until i figured out where exactly the cards needed to be to be in focus. Then I made a mental note of where in relation to the bed post on my left and the wall on my right depth wise the cards needed to be. I hit the shutter, took a seat and viola! After that I used editing software to adjust the WB and upped the saturation and contrast and gave it a more warm red tint (idea of a devils presence I'd be playing against in theory). Then I cropped it up to give it a nice look and here it is. Hope you all like it!
