Today I started a 365 Day photo challenge, in order to help me decide what topic to pick for the first days challenge I used a random number generator and picked that number from my list. Today's theme is books this isn't an area that I have experimented with much so it made me really have to think outside my comfort zone.
Here are the guidelines for anyone who would like to participate.
- The picture must me taken on the day the topic is picked.
- The photos are to be natural, no photo editing, anyone can take a shot and manipulate it to look good, that is not what I want this challenge to be about, I want it to help inspire myself and others on getting those great shots and thinking outside the box.
- Have fun!! :D
I decided to use the macro setting for this shot and played around with the angles. I picked this book because I love the aged look and the blue vines with the light background. I love how the book pops against the black background of my mini fridge
For my second book shot, the theme and title of the book are the focal points. I wanted to use a map for the background of this picture because the book is about the map that changed the world and I thought it would be fun. This was a difficult shot to try and get, because this huge map in hanging on the wall in my office and I had to climb up on a coffee table to try and get it just how I wanted. I am happy with the shot and how the light made the colours seem very saturated.

I have finally embarked on creating a blog. It has been something that has crossed my mind for some time, I just never had anything I really wanted to write about, that is up until now.
Like most people I have let the hustle and bustle of life affect the amount of time I spend on creative projects. One of my goals for 2011 is to reignite my creativity and passion for photography and try some new things I have always wanted to but just never got around to. The first new thing I decided to try was wire jewellery making, and I am loving it!! I love picking out the beads and wrapping the wire and creating something beautiful. Each piece is art, so far I have made rings and pendents. This year I also want to get my feet wet with metal stamping, It seems like something I could really be in to.
I have decided to do a 365 day photo challenge, to get my creative juices flowing. I am in the midst of compiling a list and each day I will pick something on the list to photograph and post it to my blog. The list currently stands at 212 and I am very much open to any ideas and suggestions for topics or themes. If anyone is interested in taking part in the photo challenge, at anytime I can post the subject or topic of the day before I post my photos for the day.
I am also planning to add recipes, review, giveaways and chronicle the adventures of my life.
Thanks for reading my first post!!
