It looks like we are in for several cold and dark days if the weather report has anything to say. Until the end of the month. I feel like life is standing still if I can't go out on my bike and do my daily pictures. Not that my daily pictures are very inspiring any more. I've been doing them for three, or is it four, years now. The regular practice is good, but there are other subjects besides picture with bike. I always say I should get more variety, but haven't done it yet. In a rut.
But perhaps the bleak outlook has given me a bit of a nudge. I am going to make an effort with still life photography again. The light here isn't as good as in the old apartment in Munich. Time to take a stab at using artificial light. I know nothing about it. So I ordered a soft box, not very expensive, and we'll see what I produce. I need props, too. Maybe I'll start with vegetables. Maybe I'll see what e-bay Kleinanzeigen has to offer.
For the moment, I have no props, no attractive vegetables or flowers, just this branch left over from the bouquet that Piroska brought us weeks ago. Using what was at hand, I had fun and it was a start.
I love the minimalism of the b&w image. Maybe your cold weather will push your creativity a bit? (I just bought a Trio 28. I’ve seen people set it between effects for some interesting results. Have fun with it!)
