I’m halfway out of my photography slump! I’m having ideas of things I want to try again. However, the time/energy are still lacking. This week, I even had to do indoor shots with artificial lighting. Thank goodness for RAW processing is all I’m going to say about that…
I enjoyed working with composition last week so I thought I’d give it another shot this week. I chose crayons as my subject and used plain old printer paper as a background. I fanned it out and made sure to catch the paper edges in some shots. I was just getting into it when souricette 2 requested the crayons. I had to stop so I couldn’t work on the images any longer. Well, a little is better than none, right?
I started with a bunch of crayons dumped on the paper. Very random, fall as they may.
I have a thing for random (or “random”) assortments. I figured I would push myself and organize the crayons.
Can’t seem to line them up straight, eh? I wanted to play with the colors of the crayons, arrange them in different ways. So I peeled the paper off a few more crayons.
Line up the crayons and add a random pile of papers in the back. Of course.
I’d just started breaking up the monochrome palette when souricette 2 took her crayons back. I’ll be doing more though. Maybe the sidewalk chalk!
I would never have guessed that these were NOT shot in perfect lighting. I really like the green crayons with papers in the background.
I adjusted the lighting and color afterwards 🙂 I just use the program that came with my camera (Canon) to adjust the RAW image before converting to jpg. It does a decent job, doesn’t it? I’m going to keep thinking of ideas for these types of pictures. I can see that I need to work on composition.
