You may have heard that the great and powerful LilaLoa is having a photo challenge on her blog. With great faith in my photography I decided to play along. That faith quickly faded. After making several Easter cookies, I decided those would be the ones I would photograph for the challenge.
And a challenge it was...first I wondered around the house and tried to find something to place my cookies in. I finally decided upon a drawer out of an antique chest. Then I worked, for what seemed like forever, to arrange them in the drawer. Let's just say a few cookies were injured in the making of this film. Cookies frosted in butter cream do not stack well, so I ended up with rows of cookies.
Clearly, this photo needs some help.
Next I decided to try another set of cookies with out the drawer...I used the very original idea of green paper shred. And it turned out like this~
I really like the way the colors pop, but I see shadows and I can't get rid of them. So I now decide to pretend I wanted the shadows and worked very hard to get them!
I admire those who have such lovely photography on their blog, with the fancy focus and beautiful settings. (I'm pretty sure they use camera's with straps and probably tri-pods too). I'm just not ready for the giant leap in photography, so I'll stick to my little Cannon that I still can't figure out.
I want to thank you for following my blog even though I don't have the best photos. (I try and make up for it in great ideas!)
