Thanks for taking the time to post that. I have never seen that yo-yo before, and I’m glad I asked to take a look at it. I was wondering how those defined lines could be so clear on the sides of that yo-yo, but now I see. I haven’t seen anything quite like that before.
You raise a very good point, in wondering how much effort goes into how these companies might plan the “spinning result” of their colorways. I suppose that Square Wheels throw looking so fantastic spinning could be a coincidence, but I’m inclined to believe that had to be planned to come out that good. I truly wonder. :-\ But, the result sure is brilliant either way.
I have to agree, that I’ll never determine whether I “like” a colorway, in the future, based solely on the still shot. Maybe, if it’s just a collector that sits in my case, but if it will be played, the spinning result is very important. What a “before” and “after” on that yo-yo. It looks ten times better spinning. I still prefer solids, but I can appreciate these colorway splashes a lot more after taking some photos of them in action.
I figured it might be Photoshop you used, or thought maybe the string was bright white and blended with the background when the shot was brightened. It looks like the yo-yo is unrestrained, and “free.” That is a really cool shot! You changed the game, so I will be experimenting with some close ups in my next post. Thanks again.
