This week I choose a sentimental item to use as a prop in my self portraits; a 1989 Balzac Balloon hat.
I found this hat during college while swimming at Watauga Lake in eastern Tennessee. It says "Balzac Balloons Est. 1989". I ran the Marine Corps Marathon in this hat a few years ago and I thought it deserved some attention.
I challenged myself to do one photo-shoot and create 8 different photographs using the same prop. I shot all of these photos in my bedroom using a softbox, an old projector screen and mid-day natural light.
