Cheryl McCain comes up with a new and interesting challenge every week for Frugal Still Life. I'm really enjoying this class. Still life is something that has always interested me, but I haven't taken the necessary time to explore it. I've had a book on my Kindle Still Life Photography by Kevin Best for over a year now, but haven't even started it. I'm quite sure I'll get to it once this class ends. This week's challenge was to explore complementary colors. As soon as I read the lesson, I knew I'd get out this beautiful blue bowl Sarah brought me from Mexico and fill it with tangerines. I picked up a dish towel at Target the other day which made a nice background. As usual, I played around with different perspectives, and I'm always interested in which ones appeal to you.
Here's what the set-up looked like this week. I was back in the kitchen for good light, and used a little black board I purchased as a backdrop for photographing cards to drap the kitchen towel.
