Girl With a Straw Hat

I decided to use one of Kim Klassen’s textures, that she provided for those of us, that joined her for Texture Tuesday’s. I had almost forgotten, about how much I enjoy using texture with my photos. I drift off into this creative mode and find it very relaxing and therapeutic as well. I will have to incorporate this back into my weekly photography regime, once again.

Texture Tuesday

Downloads128It’s Tuesday and time for Texture Tuesday. I am also using this for the Be Still 52 course. I started with my make shift photo studio. A large cardboard box and threw some burlap over it. For Be Still, this week, the highlight of our lesson was about  sidelight. Kim suggested that we set up near a window. I purchased a small table a few days ago. I will be able to move it easily and follow the light in our home. I don’t have a lot of options, so I am  working  with what I have. Well, we have windows but some provide better lighting than others.

Texture Tuesday

2015-02-009

I am participating in a year-long online course on Still Life,  that Kim Klassen is host to. It is taking me out of my comfort zone in some ways as I have to stop and think about what I am photographing. I tend to gravitate towards anything vintage, so there was a reason for me to hang onto old stuff that I have carried around for years. Kim suggests that we be the patient with ourselves and to work towards mastering calmness into our day. Well those are my words but it is what she is implying in Be Still 52.
