Every Month on Clickin Moms there is something called “Artist Study”. There are things to do to study the artist’s work then using that inspiration go shoot 🙂 This month is the first time I’ve tried it because the inspiration image was by one of my all time favs, Monet:
I really noticed the color reflected in the water and the movement in this painting, so I headed out on a dog walk with Youngest to see if I could capture some of it; here is what I came up with:
The “teacher” created a Monet action to utilize for this month which I’ve applied to the pictures above..not normally what I would use but I think it does help “Monet” these pics a bit. The second image resonates the most with me..probably because of the tree placement and reflection in the water, not to mention the buds that scream SPRING…but I love the movement in the water in the first image (although I’m not loving the colors in this one as much), what is your take on this?
Do you have a favorite artist you like to draw inspiration from? I will probably do this exercise again if the “teacher” picks another artist that resonates, it was fun, despite my pup not cooperating and trying to drag me away before I could click lol 😉
Urban Morning Treat
I’ve been a bit busy with life the past couple weeks, so although I’ve been taking photos, they haven’t been following the themes for my P52. Today I played catch up 🙂
There was no real sun to cooperate with today for last week’s theme of “shadows”. I was able to capture this slight shadow during the quick dance of a sweet fairy 🙂
For the week 12 theme Youngest was nice enough to write me a note for lunch 🙂
Hopefully I can get myself back on schedule with this fun project! I’ve been playing around with matte processing….I like the softness of it but don’t think it is a style that will stick for me, what do you think? To Matte or not to Matte..that is the question 😉
Playing a bit of catch up this week!
Oldest received a sewing machine from her Aunt for her birthday…she is diligently neglecting all of her other responsibilities trying to figure it out while making stylish outfits for her sister’s dolls 🙂 Here are my low angle shots of her testing the tension after changing out the thread!
The February theme for the blog circle is “Food Photography”..which I have decided is hard! I had lots of ideas this month but very little time to execute them! Oh well, I did enjoy it so I plan on spending some more time with food photography in the future 🙂 I found a great pizza crust recipe so decided to make some calzones and pizza for the girls. They were a hit!
Thanks for stopping by! Check out the food Claire captured this month and then continue around the circle of talented photographers to tempt your tastebuds 🙂
