I tried a few other set-ups, as well.
I think this would make a really cool photo card for Valentine's Day. Don't you?
And then there's this one which really built on last week's lesson about white space and the first week's lesson about sometimes cutting items off:
It took a fair amount of cropping for me to get a composition which worked. Ultimately, I think I achieved a nice balance, although perhaps I should have brought the right side in just a tad more. What do you think?
My final shot doesn't really respond to the prompt very well. But I don't care . . .
Because I love it! The angle, the focus, the composition. Everything.
I'm really learning a lot in this course, including a few things about set-up. Here's my pull back shot.
I've seen several participants drape backgrounds over a chair, so I decided to try that today. I actually put a pillow case over the back of the chair and laid a dishcloth along the seat!
I played with some other still lifes (inspired by the artwork of Matisse) which I will share this weekend. In the meantime, I love your feedback and comments. Always like to know which ones people like best.
