I am taking a course offered by Susannah Conway called Photo Meditations at the moment. I need to develop my photograph style and she gives great lessons on how to look at different aspects as we take pictures such as lines, texture, colour, shapes. This week she asked us to take our camera and focus on one thing as a muse and just take pictures of that muse in all kinds of ways looking at every angle of it. I had purchased some carnations to cheer me up because I had been housebound for a couple of weeks. So, the carnations became my muse this morning. This photo was shot with my lensbaby lens. I love how you can change the sweetspot (the focus) and get those soft and shallow depth of field. The petals of the carnation are the focus and they are so pretty and delicate. You might try this idea with your own camera.
I am joining Lisa Gordon for the Creative Exchange. If you need inspiration of photos this is the place to look. Wonderful pictures. Have a great day. Valerie
