My work area has often been my light filled windowsill over the last few days. I am in the second week of my "Photo Assignment" class, and our work this week was to photograph a collection or group of things. I have lots of "collections" of things around the house (I admit it, I am a collector!), and had some ideas in mind. Then my local florist shop, Fairview Gardens, offered a rose special- a dozen roses for $15. I couldn't pass that up at this dreary time of year. The colors were fantastic, and I chose a pale pink and a darker shade of rose. After I had them for a few days, I realized that a small bunch on the windowsill would make a perfect "collection". I just plopped them on the windowsill and shot my photo. At class last night, my teacher suggested that there might be too much white space in the bottom corner. I tried again today, but the roses are getting limp and the light was different. I was thinking that if I made a card out of the original photo, I could stamp a sentiment or add text in that empty spot, and that might work to fill it up.
I would love to hear your thoughts on this little photographic experiment of mine.
Of course Tucker was around, and I found him actually smelling the flowers on the table where he is not allowed to sit. As soon as I grabbed the camera, he turned away, and then jumped down, guess he was not in a mood to model for a picture today.
