Sometimes things lurking in your kitchen can be such fun props for making photo art.
Sometimes all you need is:
white seamless paper…
…and a new toy!
Loving this Lens Baby…having fun playing with it.
This was actually shot because I was looking for something interesting to do my encaustic tricks on this weekend. After all, it is encaustic month in our Great Medium Experiment.
Okay, lovelies! Are you ready?! It’s photo challenge time…
1) find something “still-life-ish” in your home…fruit, vintage item, book, scissors..you get the idea.
2) Look over the tutorials (keep in mind Day One starts at the bottom of the link) and set your aperture on the lowest one you’ve got (I shot at 2.8)…you DO NOT need a special lens for this adventure.
3) Grab a piece of long drawing paper..white is best…prop it up against something in your garage or window (light needs to be good comin’ in) and prop it up so it makes a mini wall and mini floor for your still life item.
4) Optional: grab a kidlet and have them hold the item..works best with edible ones (items, not kids..heehee). Avoid having them look at the camera for an “artsy look”.
5) Also optional: If you’ve used textures before, throw one on that image and see what turns up.
5) Email me your fave image! firstname.lastname@example.org
The maker of the winning image will receive some one-on-one photo tutorial question/answer time with moi…either through email or phone..your choice!
BE BRAVE, lovelies…take a leap, make some art and send it to MPG Land.
