I'm participating in Kim Klassen's 52 week Beyond Layers class this year, and yesterday I was working on her challenge to set up some sort of indoor area for photography with natural light. I'm lucky that our kitchen gets a lot of sunlight in the winter (with all the leaves off the trees), so I set up an area right near our large kitchen window. I stacked two boxes on the floor, up against the kitchen wall, and then covered the boxes with a large piece of Bristol paper. The lighting was great - my only complaint was that I couldn't get the Bristol paper to lay completely flat. I bought these tiny glass vases at Target yesterday, and the baby's breath are from the beautiful flowers my husband gave me for Valentine's Day. All in all, I was happy with my results considering I have a point-and-shoot camera...as always, RadLab helped me tremendously. I used Lights On, Prettyizer and Oh Snap! to make everything pop a little further.
I also wanted to add another photo I took later in the day with my iPhone...I had placed the vases in my kitchen window and loved how they looked, so I couldn't resist an Instagram shot! The same three vases with a completely different look...I'm submitting both of these photos over at Deb Duty's This or That Thursday.
