I am a pretty creative person. Since blogging though I find myself becoming more and more of a copycat! Who can help it? There is so much inspiration in blogland I can hardly keep up. Today when I saw a new post from Courtney at French Country Cottage here. I knew I needed to have a photo session with a chair. Now, I wish I had the old bike (that she got for a beer) but I don't have one yet. You do know I'll be looking for one though! I do however have the chair..and flowers, so I was in business.
I have done a lot of portrait photography--it is what I am good at. I found that working with a chair was quite a nice experience. It didn't complain, it stayed where I put it..everything was good. This chair is my chair at the dinner table..so she and I have a good relationship. :)
Then the wind started blowing..and it reminded me of when I was taking senior portraits once and the wind was catching the girls hair just perfectly...
So Courtney is still the queen of flowers on the chair pictures but I had fun shamelessly copying her. I also loved the effect she used of making the flowers in color and the rest B&W so I did that too (with Picmonkey) I think it looks awesome. What do you think?
So then tonight I also got inspired to copy French laundry and the beautiful images she posted today of snowballs in a blue Ball jar.
How pretty is that?
Now I sit at my computer ready for one more search for the night of beautiful inspiration, with my "props" in the window beside me.
Thanks for inspiring me, and thanks for visiting!
