I guess some days you just have to admit defeat. I really didn’t get any great photos today. I tried several different ideas, but some times things just don’t translate well into photographs.
It was late and after dark again when I got serious about photography today. Unfortunately, that limits my options. And some days my creativity doesn’t work. After all, there’s only so much to do around the house, at least in terms of styles of photographs.
I initially was looking at a pair of my boots, a little worn, laying on the floor. I thought I might be able to tell some story with them. I tried several different arrangements, and tried to vary the lighting for effect, but none of my pictures conveyed what I wanted them too.
Then I tried photographing a glass globe that sits on my end table. I put a few different model planes behind it, hoping to refract the colors. These turned out okay, but not great. Plus, they had some outside glare.
Finally, I went back to the story-telling idea, this time photographing the stuff on my nightstand. This time, I was hoping to convey something about the person who owned the stuff on there, but again, the message got lost.
But, I have to pick something. So here’s a photo of the globe.
