The latest lesson on Kat's class Find Your Eye Journey of Recognition was to find something new to photograph.
At first I wasn't sure what to do but then I remembered about a silver tea set which we inherited from Dan's mum and dad.
I really love it and once I had cleaned it up (boy did it need some silver cleaner) it looked really good.
Well what I mean to say is the teapot looked good - I'm not so sure about the pictures!!!
I have to say I enjoyed trying to find different ways to shoot it - but my main bugbear was trying to eliminate reflections. I always knew I was going to get them but I was trying to find ways to lessen them.
After a while I decided the best thing to do would be to take advantage of them.
So I tried to place the tea set in such a way as to get the best reflective pictures.
But you will have to excuse the fact that I am in ALL of the pictures lol.
I also tried to use the lovely ornate handles as I felt they added another dimension to the pictures.
I don't know if I managed to shoot 100 images but it can't have been much less than that - there were a lot of duff shots that I didn't like. I did finally reach the stage where I didn't know what else to do with them and I did find it quite limiting which I don't usually find when taking pictures of something I know.
I did enjoy doing this new subject but I definately need more practice and experience with it.
