Back to reality

by Helen Hooker August. 30, 2010 3944 views

After being in a little photographic ??bubble?? for the last few days I came back to reality with a bump today. I spent the morning helping Kevin trim the lavender bushes in our garden then stripped the flowers off the clippings to make things with them once they??ve dried. After lunch I then made a start on preparations for the new school term with a letter to all my pupils. By 5pm I??d done lots of ??stuff?? but hadn??t taken a single photograph ?? quite a change from yesterday! I decided to grab a quick shot before we went out for the evening so I chose this peg as my subject. I used the soft light on my music room windowsill for illumination (once I??d clambered over the boxes of music left over from summer school!) and then added lots of punch in Lightroom.

Great post! It's kind of a bummer to drop back to reality, isn't it? I hope your school goes very well for you. Thank you for the tips you shared from your photography course! If you have any more, please share!
