Circle of Life
Waiting for a LightThis week's assignment in Kim Klassen's Be Still 52 still life photography class was to experiment with diagonal lighting. I'm not sure I ever understood the lesson exactly because as I moved around, the light was no longer coming in on a diagonal (and the lesson encouraged us to move around). The lesson also involved photographing a spoon, but I got reflections in the spoon which I found distracting. So I moved on to other objects.
But, at the end of the shoot and my post-editing session, I ended up with these two photographs which I like a lot. Plus, I'm really excited to take more shots with Henry's baby rattle (which I discovered in the silver drawer when I was looking for a spoon). So, it's all good!
I'm sharing these as part of Helena's photo pairs meme. I'll let you title the connection.
