Hello and welcome to the halfway mark of the
Before I get on with this weeks theme I just wanted to take the opportunity to thank you for for joining in with the challenge! It gives me such a thrill everytime I see a new image pop up. I hope you’re enjoying pushing those creative boundries and stepping outside your comfort zone, I know I am.
Right, moving on moving on....
Week Four - FREESTYLE
Since it’s the halfway mark I thought it would be nice to have a challenge to express yourself, put a little bit of YOU into your flatlays. Take a step back and think about it, what do you prefer to photograph? Are you all about the bright and airy, or do you lean more toward a moodier style? How about colour, what’s your ideal palette? Composition?
This theme initially sounded a little simplistic to me, however, the more I thought about it the more I knew it would be an excellent assignment. Freestyling, mastering your own personal style, requires an enormous amount of work. It’s all about balancing the flow of your image, of products within that image. Knowing where to place the focus and how to purposefully place your props to appear most pleasing to the eye all while maintaining your own personal touch.
I have to admit I’m really intrigued to see what you have in store for this week, it’s going to be a fun one.
