Its Easter here in NZ and while I have avoided the temptation to indulge in too much chocolate, I was seduced to purchase some bits and bobs for my still life experiments. This cute little nest with three eggs, a twig and some feathers was irresistable and so apropos for the season.
The LED lights were another purchase, I saw them in a shop window and my brain had hiccups which ultimately resulted in this image.
It is difficult to do a self portrait of your own hands when you need one of them to focus and press the shutter. Thank goodness my camera has a 10 sec timer.
I should add that this is partially inspired but the wonderful work I am seeing in the Brooke Shaden 30 Days of Creativitiy Challenge. Due to my unexpectedly busy workload I have been unable to participate much at all, but have been enjoying all the wonderful images. Brooke uses herself in many of her images, and that has been a theme with much of the work I see. It has been surprising the really clever ideas and concepts people have come up with and I am slowly working towards setting up where I can experiment using more of myself as the model in an image.
Hope you all have a great Easter, whenever and however you celebrate it!
