Thirty-one days later, and I’m still in the game for the 365: the 2011 edition on Flickr.
Today, I painted a pot of pink flowers with light. I like the idea of still life, but they can be quite boring. I tried to make it more interesting, by using a long exposure, a dark room and light from my rape alarm. What do you think?
For those interested:
It has been an interesting month trying to fit in the running, this blog and my daily photos. The hardest part is trying to think of ideas of what to photograph. Sometimes it needs a bit of planning. For example, for tonight’s photo I had an idea of a still life painting in my mind which I wanted to emulate in a photo. There was the set up (see above gallery), I had to think of the direction of light, the height of the camera etc. The background was a black soft-shell suitcase as I didn’t want a shiny background and didn’t have any black material.
Some of my photos on my Flickr stream are just quick snaps and others, I hope to develop in to a series.
One month down, 11 months to go.
