My friend Jamie did a photo collage project recently. It looked like fun, so I decided to try one, too. I felt unusually energetic during my daughters' nap time, so while my husband stayed in the house, I gave myself one hour to do this. My goal was to do it fast and complete it. That's it. I made 3 constraints to help me work faster:
1. All vertical formats
2. No post-photo processing, all framing in camera
3. Take photos in order listed
Then, I took about 1 hour to make the collage on the computer.
That was so satisfying-thanks for the idea, Jamie!
-There was only one dang cloud in the sky.
-It wasn't nighttime, so I had to fake the "after dark", and "sunset"
-Inspirational photo...I found a "gift nest" Violet made for the squirrel who moved into our owl box. I'm inspired by the kind impulses of my children.
-Strangers was difficult since I live in the country, so I rounded up some suspicious-looking characters in my studio
-Only 2 flowers growing on our entire place, and they're smaller than a dime
-The last photo of me has fingers crossed...I didn't have time to set up a tripod, and I was hoping to get a good shot...I don't know why, but I have the hardest time getting myself centered in the frame while hand-holding the camera.
