Look at this! Glitter! My wife came to to me having glitter on my face……this is the crazy stuff going on ppl!
I had some left over glitter, and a mini bucket – voila! Nothing goes to waste – thankfully, my kittens haven’t gotten into it – yet!
I’m working on light and shadows – and light sources – I used a stationary light to cast shadows from different angles. Something we had in the cellar. Then in post, using lightroom, I’m working on different processing. Preserving the colors and not washing them out, and not darkening the shadows to much either.
I bought 3 small buckets for a buck, and a bag of letters! I didn’t know what I was going to do with the letters at the time, but then, voila! Part of these photoshoots are about pushing imagination. And – you know, glitter!
The teapot is something that I found up in a cabinet – it’s Jules’. I strung my keys on a bracelet that we bought somewhere for a few bucks. The background is some sort of cooking things. Yeah, not kidding! Of course, I have my keys which always make an appearance.
Love will conquer all – That’s all for this installment!
As the world knows, we’re on lock down. So I’ve been slightly bored, and sick, I have bronchitis. But, I was feeling creative the other day. Out came the camera!
Firstly, meet Domino – he’s one of our new kittens (his brother, Nimbus comes around later) – He decided to photobomb me. I have been watching a lot of Peter Peter Mckinnon on youtube, He’s a vid blogger from O Canada and his style of photography is wicked cool. I can’t afford his presets – but I have watched most of his videos so I’ve been recreating some. He has some great early vids about texture, and etc. Very much worth a watch!
I spent a year and a quarter of my PTA career in Stonington, ME. One of the things I loved to do, was find places to photography the sunset, or even the middle of the day. Inevitably, you find sea glass. I’d always go home with a pocket full, and then come home to Northern Maine, and put them in jars. My sister in law was kind enough to give me a few new ones so I spent a some time dividing them into smaller, color coded jars. When the sun hit, it really picks up the colors. I used a basket for some textured background. And my keys made an appearance, of course.
As you can see, Domino came back for a 2nd guest appearance. I took out my lens extenders, that changes the focal point and allows you to take pictures closer in macro.
Say hello to Nimbus – he is more of a poser and decided that my photo table was now “his” and I decided to do some snaps of the lil guy.
After Nimbus took his leave, I played some more with a few objects – and then in post, several different *looks*. I’m going to try and do at least one day of photos a week during this lock down time, gotta do something, right?
There is beauty in everything – in every fleck of rust, in every curve of a bottle, in every color of glass, in every line of a table, in the way the light shafts of the angle of a door knob…. There is beauty everywhere….
