my creative space . . . 'creative perspective'
Creativity is all about perspective. I've been creative, mainly in a sewing capacity, forever, yet haven't sewn for ages. I've fed my creativity in different ways, with . . .
baking . . .
gardening . . .
fencing . . .
& playing around with photography. When you can't create something with your hands, you can always find something to photograph!!
My photography is all about angles, composition, filters. What is the most popular subject matter at Posie Shoots?? Eggs!! You can tell from the colour & size of the eggs, we have an interesting variety of hens . . . i haven't created the eggs, yet how i photograph them is well received. The eggs are laid on hay, collected in a wire basket, popped into cartons (i shoot from all of these different backdrop props) or like yesterday's haul - muddy eggs plonked on the kitchen counter - rolling to a resting position.
I have no idea how this "instagram image" below occurred, it just turned up in my bulk iPhone download, it was the only one like it, so thought i'd use it & pretend i am clever.
The filter on this lavender adds vibrance, sorry Mother Nature but the lighting wasn't great. I could have taken this shot arial, front on, grassy background . . . i went low with the fence backdrop, to allow more light & avoid capturing the dead shrub next to it. The rest was computer software creativity.
If you're putting images up on social media & you want to get noticed, you have to be creative!! Quality photography equipment does most of the work, like this image below - egg shells in a cream bowl on a white counter - monotones to the maximum. Organic shapes are great as they don't have to line up & provide their own interesting angle.
