I hope you had a gorgeous weekend! I had a yummy dinner out with my favourite girls, a catch up with an old friend, a visit to an antique sale and my baby cousin's baptism. All in all, a great weekend!
Last week I posted my images from the Interior Styling Group January and March challenges. And this weekend I got around to doing the February and April challenges, so now I'm finally all caught up-phew!
Holly's instructions for February:
Using tape, thumb tacks, nails, whatever you would like, photograph a collection of your favorite images against a wall. Think of arranging them in a gallery-like fashion. Remember, you are styling a photo to tell a story. Try to choose images that relate to one another and this time you can use odd or even numbers but you need to show more than 5 images in your photo. Use postcards, greeting cards, prints, business card, magazine pages, anything graphic that inspires you. If you wall is boring, consider taping up wallpaper or fabric or even some gift wrap (no shine) as a background and tape or tack your images to that and crop it so that the background appears to be the wall itself.
Note: Nothing should be in a frame. This is an exercise of creativity, not to simply take a photo of pictures you already have on the wall.
Holly's instructions for April:
Let's celebrate the little things this month and work on some macro (close up) shots while focusing on capturing a mood. The mood is to try to show the feelings of romance, femininity, humility, grace and truth. I've included an example of this in my submission below where I've photographed some simply flowers, a doily and some books that I just finished reading. But the focus, if you notice, is on the feeling of softness, relaxation and of course - femininity. Beneath the photo tell us the mood you were going for.
