I still have two photos left in the Content Creation Challenge, and this weekend I got some beautiful fabric that gave me an idea for “time”.
Yesterday I worked at school all day, and I felt totally empty when I got home. I love my students, and I give all I have…
So, a perfect time to do something that requires a whole different mindset than teaching! The dogs followed me, curious about what I would do. I really liked this sky, but soon saw that the light didn’t work at all.
So I moved, and soon learned that horses are 1. very curious, and 2. easily scared.
But I got some shots to use, the light was perfect, and I liked the sky even better!
Now, I wanted some extra shots of the fabric and moved to an area with shorter grass. I was careful to use the same angle, to get the same light.
It was windy, and that means I would have to flip the photo later to get the flowy fabric on both sides. Not a problem. Much harder to get the fabric to cooperate! I have 50 shots of me holding fabric in the wind…
And the final photo looks like this:
I am really pleased, this is almost exactly the image in my head 🙂
So to make this photo you need:
- Two dogs as company (absolutely necessary for the creative process)
- Two skittish horses (optional)
- A piece of fabric, about 100 kronor (10 dollars)
- A tripod for your camera
- Remote (I use my phone and Fujis app)
- More patience and stubbornness
- A few hours in Photoshop (three, I think it took me)
