Week 5 down, 47 to go!
So moms and dads out there, I’m sure you know how hard it is to get out of the house to take your 365 shot of the day. Not to mention if you live in a place that gets cold for the winter, who wants to get bundled up to go outside? So, I’ve been trying to think up ways to inject some creativity while staying indoors. Today’s photo reminds me of the assignments we used to get in my high school photography class. I imagine walking into Photo II and Mr. B announcing, “Today’s topic is reflections. Okay now get to work.”
Got it Mr. B. Here’s my shot for the day.
This stainless steel bowl has been my constant companion for the last six months. I carry my pumping accessories in it. So, as I was sitting around in the early evening and realized I hadn’t gotten a shot for the day yet – I noticed that Photo Book Baby was staring at it, no doubt cause its shine and reflectiveness caught his eye (ah, he’s turning out to be a very visual baby like his mama!) So, I thought why not try to capture our photo together in its reflection? I also Instagramed this one. I like how this particular filter (sorry can’t remember its name) gave this rather ordinary bowl a bit of patina. I also like how Photo Book Baby’s outfit and my thumb is visible at the edges of the photo – showing a bit of reality on this side of the bowl and then the “funhouse” reflection in the bowl.
I hope Mr. B gives me an “A” today.
I love hearing about how your project is going. How do you come up with ideas for your shots of the day?
