The Victim

I started off with this idea of shooting a lemon and its reflection on the dining room table.

Then I got the brilliant idea of telling its story.

Lemon was feeling pretty happy having found a family it could fit in with. It was nothing out of the ordinary just a yellow lemon plucked from its tree at an early age before being shipped across the continent and finding a place to spend its days. No one expected much from Lemon but one day Lemon would show them how great it really was. Soon, however, a turn of events would bring Lemon’s life to a sudden close.

Stay tuned to future posts to find out what happens next.

Play Me a Song

Still stuck indoors I had to come up with a photograph and I was out of ideas. As the evening drew to a close I frantically came up with a plan to do something with the largest piece of furniture in the room – the piano. Okay it’s not really a piece of furniture as it is a musical instrument but most days it sits against the wall acting like a piece of furniture.

Since I didn’t just want a photo of the keys I decided to play a little something as I took the photo and then process it to death. I made part of it black and white while processing the other part with a more vintage feel.

Temps Plummet More

Just when you think it won’t get any colder, it does. Today was another one of those horribly frigid days here and I decided this was the day to search out some frost.

Since I didn’t want to venture outside all I did was open my front door and waited for the frost to appear on the screen door. It didn’t take long before it started to appear. The above was my favourite shot from the small bunch of shots I took.

Staying Warm

Monday started out very cold and eventually just warmed up to cold. No one wants to venture out and I certainly didn’t. As soon as I got home from work I quickly got into my warm sweats and boiled up some water for a mug of steamy hot tea to warm myself up.

That’s when the idea popped in my head for the shot above. ┬áThis whole process of taking a shot a day is already taking its toll on coming up with ideas. Especially since getting out into the cold was not necessarily an option at the end of the day. The good thing is I’m learning to work with indoor lighting and still life rather than landscapes. It’s always good to stretch your talent into areas you are not comfortable with.
