Photography Class

I guess I am nearing the end of this semester's photography class (*sniff*), and I haven't had time to show you the last project I worked on. We made fine art posters.
The idea was to photograph a collection of things and arrange them on a poster. So. I did just that.
This first one is a collection of sand and shells. You all (mostly) know that we go to the beach on the Summer Solstice every year. That's the only day of the year that I let my kids collect shells willy-nilly and I always take a little sand. Then we fill a milk bottle with our treasure and put it on a shelf. This year, we will fill our tenth bottle! Anyway, I was in a rush during class, so I didn't have time to think of clever text, but here's the result:

This next one was really fun. Remember the sewing box of my great-grandma's that I got for my birthday a couple of years ago? Mindy helped me group and set up the items (she's such a great prop stylist!) and I really enjoyed seeing my little treasures in a different way. This one...this one made sense to me. I am a maker. I use whatever I can find to make things. So, I titled this one with a directive - Make.

I'll get around to posting the full-sized, watermarked (!) photos of all these, I hope. I am feeling very backlogged in photographs to share, not to mention knitting and the rest of life! Sigh. We'll catch up soon, won't we?

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE these. Really. I mean the beaches, the crafties. I could swim in the creativity. Well done.

I love, love the beach one, probably because I miss the beach so much right now. And I'm really envious of your handwriting ;)

The Make one is fab too and I could totally see that in someone's crafting room.
