Today I started a 365 Day photo challenge, in order to help me decide what topic to pick for the first days challenge I used a random number generator and picked that number from my list. Today's theme is books this isn't an area that I have experimented with much so it made me really have to think outside my comfort zone.
Here are the guidelines for anyone who would like to participate.
- The picture must me taken on the day the topic is picked.
- The photos are to be natural, no photo editing, anyone can take a shot and manipulate it to look good, that is not what I want this challenge to be about, I want it to help inspire myself and others on getting those great shots and thinking outside the box.
- Have fun!! :D
I decided to use the macro setting for this shot and played around with the angles. I picked this book because I love the aged look and the blue vines with the light background. I love how the book pops against the black background of my mini fridge
For my second book shot, the theme and title of the book are the focal points. I wanted to use a map for the background of this picture because the book is about the map that changed the world and I thought it would be fun. This was a difficult shot to try and get, because this huge map in hanging on the wall in my office and I had to climb up on a coffee table to try and get it just how I wanted. I am happy with the shot and how the light made the colours seem very saturated.
