Photography Fun

May 5, 2011

One of my favorite days of the month is when I get together with my pal Julie for our skills swapping day.  She teaches me a bunch of new stuff about photography and using my camera.  In return, I am her gardening coach.  After working on taking some action shots, I’ll be more prepared for next year’s RE Store’s Trash Fashion show, and our upcoming visit with our two year-old granddaughter, Claire.

This shot was working on back lighting.  I’m not sure if it’s supposed to have this paint-by-numbers quality, but I’m darn pleased with it all the same.

Pom Pom Bouquet

April 6, 2011

This week’s Wonderful Wednesday is my makes-me-smile pom pom bouquet created by my talented buddy Julie.  (Please click on her name to see even better views of her faux flowers.)  Another snappy detail is the German glass glitter doing its magic on the neck of this gorgeous bottle.  This is just the touch of spring we’re all craving!

Pitching Ideas Project

March 9, 2011

Pitching ideas for magazine stories is a collaborative effort I am doing with my talented friend, Julie Sotomura of Photomura.  Talk about one + one = a stronger, more vibrant result! 

It all started when I was staging our previous home for sale using many of my found objects and upcycled projects, like the rusty creations in my blog banner.  The results were so striking that I asked Julie if she would be interested in photographing them, and together we could present them as a variety of story ideas to some national magazines.  Well of course, Julie took it to a higher level with the templates she designed to illustrate each idea.

Then we had a most fun play date transforming ordinary clipboards into fetching frames to present our ideas.  I’ll keep you posted on what results.
