A Personal Challenge

Isle Of Skye Wedding Photographer

On Wednesday, I challenged myself.  

I selected three props from round the house and I told myself to photograph them, finding new ways to express my creative voice and freshen my photography.

Starting off with a vintage camera, an antique photograph and an elderly book, I made my way outside.  I was interested to see which of the props I kept and which I decided not to use.

The finished result is the above photograph, which I was surprisingly happy with.  I love the way the open pages of the book make you feel like you're about to step into a wonderful adventure, and the bokehed background symbolises all the places a novel can lead you.  

I was astonished to find the photograph featured in a number of awesome hubs on Instagram, including everything_imaginable, tv_charmingfences and dof_brilliance.  Being featured is always an honour and such an amazing surprise!

Each Wednesday, I am planning to challenge myself in the exact same way - three props, one camera and lots of imagination.  I'm certain that this will recharge my creative batteries and keep my photographic voice fresh.  And, even if it doesn't, it's a whole lot of fun!
