I was busy, busy this past week and try as I might – had no inspiration for WHITE. I wanted to just cheat and use a photo I’d taken before, but I decided to go with something I just shot. I listened to Zach and Jody on Creative Live last week and took to heart what Jody said about Perfectionism. Sometimes you’ve done enough.
So I just made this white tent and the dog had white on him so that counts, right? Not perfect, but this P52 is for fun, a challenge, and to learn new things. I think I had success with all 3 in a different way than I imagined!
I made this tent! It’s upcycled from an old Paper White dress. It’s linen and cotton with hand embroidery. It’s gorgeous, but was ruined by a wine stain at the wedding it was worn at. Success!
Lightroom was used for all of this – the edits, frames, watermarks. I would be so happy if I could use Lightroom more to speed up my workflow. Something about Photoshop adds a little something, something I haven’t been able to recreate in LR…yet. So I accomplished something by learning a little more about creating this storyboard frame. Success!
So, I made a tent, captured some goofy dog expressions, used white, and learned I need more practice shooting white. Success!
In a way, no inspiration turned into a great learning opportunity!
