A little while back I started doing Kim Klassen’s online Be Still Still Life Course, and then her BeStill One Year [Wiser] course, both are amazing, inspirational, healing, meditative and calming. However with so much on of late, I have been letting it slide. I spent a few hours over the weekend in the studio; just playing. So there are quite a few images here…
I have had a few attempts at Week 21 Prompt, but was never happy with any of them, not overly happy with this one in regards to the specs, I do however like this image; I guess it’s my own interpretation. I am not a huge fan of Top Down and have not mastered it, as yet.
Now you may think it’s a copy and re crop of the image above, but not quite, same backdrop (studio concrete floor) and props………..but things have been moved and I gave it a edgier, moodier feel.
Week 27 – Top Down, Square, 2 x Open sides
OK so this time I am cheating a little, we needed to take inspiration from a magazine picture, I really didn’t feel it (to be honest, apart from maybe the twine) and then make some bunting for a backdrop. I the find the image a little messy and not so pretty, not really my taste, but we have to try new things, right?
Using the bunting we made the week before (same day in this case) and use it in the background to help create a vignette. I kind of like the images, but I don’t think I quite hit the mark on the session specs. I did have one problem; this wonderful frame used in the image, fell on the floor and shattered into a dozen pieces 😦 , just after I took this shot. I really liked that frame, cheap yes………but it looked great in photos. It just meant I could not re shoot this shot.
Week 37 – Vignette with Bunting
More pretty pastels, you may have seen this one before, but it is just so pretty
Find one object and shoot it at least 4 different ways and then put it in a collage, I didn’t really like the collage much, and prefer the images separately. When you make a collage, I learned to do all images in landscape or portrait, or 2 of each not 1 portrait on it’s own………looks lonely. I also found out the this item is called a LAST..I never knew that either.
Week 45 – One Thing
This last image is fairly self explanatory, Coffee and Change…..
Still leaves a few things to shoot from this course, but slowly getting there. I love the fact that I can pick and choose which weeks to do, rather than do them in order.
