Photo Pairs: Diagonal Lighting (Be Still 52)

Circle of Life
 
Waiting for a Light
This 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.

Understood lesson or not, you can still do things with light I'll never get to!

Curved and straight seems good to me!

Circles, empty and full? I think i am clutching at straws here ... The light and texture in the one of Henry's rattle is especially attractive.

I Think trying things out is such a big part of the learning experience. Fun to find a rattle when you were looking for a spoon.

These look good, and it's cool you discovered the rattle during your spoon hunt! x

They look really good whether you understood the lesson or not and I like that you inadvertantly found Henry's rattle.
