This is my second attempt at posting this – very frustrating as I’d done the whole thing and even posted it, but there was a long, long blank insert on it that I couldn’t get rid of. So I had to delete it all …. apologies to anyone who’d already viewed it!! Let’s hope this one will be successful cos I might just go out and shoot myself !
I really like doing white on white, high key pics – especially as I seem to have accumulated a collection of white ‘objects d’Art’ – posh word for bric-a-brac ! Actually, some pieces are really nice …. this little lady was a recent birthday pressy and the cup and saucer are Coalport ‘Country Ware’.
It’s gawn ‘n put ’em in the wrong order now!! The Deer pics are supposed to follow each other and the Swan with border should’ve been 3rd – grrrr Ne’ mind eh? Lol !
Doing my favourite thing – Still Life. This one is all about contrasts – of shapes, colours, and textures. I thought the portrait format suited the tall pot. This image is also about repeating curves.
I placed this group slightly to the left and brought the orange peel forward to add a bit more depth to the image and boosted the brightness.
A bit more traditional in landscape format and content. Used those conkers again !
I removed the Fan and played around with the lighting for this one. Let me know what you think …. constructive criticism always welcome ! many blessings, Eileen
I used to paint a lot and my favourite subject was Still Life, so I accumulated a lot of pots, vases, china and objects that I picked up from charity shops to use to that end. When I downsized three years ago I had to get rid of most, but kept my favourites.Now I find that I’m enjoying setting them out to photograph and trying out different lighting and effects. This is especially useful as I find it difficult to get out and about as much as I would like to and the garden hasn’t much inspiration to offer at the moment.
