Photography Styling Challenge- Light

7 Comments

What a disastrous month this has been! Apart from studying, driving baby A to daycare and cooking (badly at that) for basic survival, I have been up to absolutely nothing! Throw in a couple of weeks of being totally sick (yes, all of us!) and I was ready to call it quits and run back crying to Amma. Thankfully, that has passed but unfortunately, I had to give up that one thing which has been bringing me respite since I joined this challenge back in October: messing about with my camera.

Hence, I was so unprepared for this month’s challenge. In fact, I realized that the first Monday was already upon me only when I saw a couple of posts on our (very secret) Facebook page. Since it was already too late, I had to rummage around on my memory card and find interesting concepts that I had already photographed since the beginning of the challenge. Thankfully, I did not disappoint me as much as I though I would. I had apparently practiced a couple of times for this concept because I knew it was going to be a difficult albeit super interesting subject to click.
light3I know, this picture could have been so much more but I was in a hurry to get going, something that happens when you have a bawling baby waiting for dinner. It was after Thanksgiving, on a long-awaited visit to the World of Coca Cola in Atlanta. We were just coming back home when this festively lit tree caught my attention. I had to click a picture, I mean, how can I not?!
light4Again, so much more. But I loved the pretty lights. I wanted to get that out-of-focus effect but decided to make it straightforward.  I had to pick between two other pictures but was completely confused. So I decided to go with the prettier, more whimsical concept to bring it home and call this challenge done.
Light2This was one of my Instagram pics a couple of weeks ago. Although I clicked it on my DSLR, I decided to stow it away for this specific challenge. I am in the process of planning baby A’s first birthday. Now wait a minute. I know you are probably going “ALREADY?!” The thing is I like being ahead on planning huge events (sentiment-wise, not size-wise). And if the past month was any reflection on how life is going to be for the next couple of years, it only makes sense to plan waaay ahead of time because when time flies, WHAM! It hits you in the face.

So I was playing around with gift tissue papers and decided to figure out how to make those poms. After a couple of tutorials, I made a pretty but slightly frazzled pom and thought it would be a beauty to click pics of. I was right and wrong.

  1. Lovely entries, Vaish. Kudos to you for keeping an eye out for pretty pics all the time!
    I adore the tissue pom shot. Something about the pink and the brightness of the picture just brightens my soul 🙂

  2. Hey Vaish! I have been waiting for your entries… and they are worth the wait for! They are lovely! I really like the pink tissue paper shot. All the best to you for the planning and preparation of your lil’ princess’ first birthday.
