This is so much fun! 🙂
This week’s Photo Art Friday (optional) challenge is still life. As with lines, it’s not something I often consider or work with, but that’s what a challenge is for, right?
I did have a couple of shots of an ageing apple, taken some months ago (after seeing some inspirational and amazing photos by jacglenphoto) that I never got around to doing anything about… but as still life shots, I thought I’d give one of them a try for this challenge:
For some reason, still life pretty much equals watercolour in my mind, and I wanted to try out a few new paper textures of mine… so a watercolour it was. And then some…
And that led me to another picture. This one a more recent shot where I personally loved the pose, but which left a little too much to be wished for strictly as a photograph.
I know these images are rather low-key edited, but I’m trying not to make the novice’s usual mistake of going absolutely nuts with possibilities… 🙂 plus, a kind of pale serenity seemed right for the theme!
