I bought this vintage fan because I loved the way it looked, but wasn’t sure how I would use it. Then I heard the phrase “blowing kisses” and the light went on.
The fan’s metal blades were strong enough to blow the strings, but when I added the chocolates, the strings fell disappointingly flat. I ended up clamping the whole composition sideways and letting gravity lend a hand.
This is one of my earlier images, created when I was exploring dark, dramatic backgrounds for my subjects. I love the way the background enhances the cool metal of the fan and the sparkly foil textures.
The fan is about 50 years old, with solid metal blades - clearly made in a time when finger safety wasn’t top of mind!
