Ok.. they’re probably 3 normal size pears.. but I liked the title 😀
I bought these beautiful pears the other day – not to eat, but to photograph!
The shape of these really appeals to me.
A few thoughts out loud:
Still Life does not come easily for me.. I really need to work and spend time with my SL subjects.. like these quirky pears.. but… I kind of want it to make sense.. and I’m not sure if it does… lol..
I do enjoy being behind the camera.
I’d like to tell stories with my SL images too and perhaps that will come in time. Good to have a challenge, especially on those rainy days.
I really do enjoy the spontaneity of the natural world and it’s ah-ha moments, but I also like seeing an outcome with SL, so I’ll persist and be diligent (some days) 🙂 Other days.. you know where I am if I can help it! Outside. Especially in Spring and Autumn!
My favourite artist – Margaret Olley spent her latter years, painting still life and they were wonderful, so I’m very inspired by her lovely work – especially her use of colour and subjects. Quite often ordinary things.
Here’s what I found studying these 3 pears through the lens.
I liked the light, the colours and the subjects.
These 5 images were shot within a 5 minute period. There were others, but while I was shooting I was thinking of Desley’s 5 min challenge – Regular Random.
So for the challenge and these images, I used different lenses and different ways of looking at the pears.
..and the 3 little pears lived happily ever after… ok, until they’re eaten anyway..
