For the Daily Shoot assignment on texture…we’ve got ribs, knitting, satin and leather. I will definitely be wearing these to work tomorrow – and I should be suitably blinding, eh?
Life has been getting in the way of taking photos for the last few days - I was traveling yesterday and today has been filled with kid drama and grocery shopping.
Today’s Daily Shoot photo assignment was all about shadows and texture. This probably wasn’t quite what they had in mind. I was ironing tomorrow’s shirt and I noticed all the cool shadowy areas and how they changed as I ironed. Out came the camera, I fluffed out the shirt and that was that. With the photo being mostly monochromatic, I think that every little shadow brings out the fine wrinkles and even the texture of the weave and construction of the shirt (a little).
Tomorrow’s outfit, you ask? This shirt, with a charcoal wool pencil skirt, a pumpkin-pie colored cardigan and fuchsia lipstick – and I will look too fine!
…Oh is there anything pink that I won’t buy? No, there isn’t. I splurged on these at Christmas and have been waiting for a chance to wear them out with the matching pink satin clutch I got at the same time. Finally got the chance on Saturday at the club.
Trying to do a macro that is not so close that you can’t tell it is a shoe…of all that I took, I think these do okay. Still working on lighting issues and am reading Light– Science & Magic : an Introduction to Photographic Lighting by Fil Hunter, Steven Biver and Paul Fuqua. Have I learned anything from it yet? You be the judge!
