Today I had a spontaneous need to do something creatively different from what I would ordinarily do and am not necessarily comfortable with. I wanted to do something within a short time frame, for fun and practice. Looking around, I was inspired by the colors of a few items sitting within arms reach. I had my iphone next to me, so I decided I was going to make a couple of small, quick still lifes and photograph them. It was a really fun hour, and it felt great to try something different.
Here are a few photos from my on-the-spot still life/photo exercise.
Origami paper, seashells, candy.
