I want to continue on the Toilet Paper Project for this week. Look at the image above. I photographed a row of rocks on the bike path behind my house. Now take a look at the second image.

Positioned a roll of toilet paper into the upper middle of the image. Watch how it changes the entire dynamic of the image. What can we learn from this? A small object can change the appearance of the overall image. Therefor it is of the utmost importance of every photographer to watch the details and control them if possible.

As always, enjoy this exercise and have fun with your camera!   

The Toilet Paper Project 01

This week I ask you to take a roll of toilet paper with you wherever you go to photograph. After you have photographed your subject take another shot after you placed the toilet paper somewhere into the frame. Of course you can start right away with the toilet paper inside the composition. It really get’s great when you create photograph with toilet paper at locations where people don’t expect to find it.

Normally you don’t see tomatoes and toilet paper together. I picked a black background to enhance the contrast.

Enjoy, have fun with this exercise and be creative!

Shoes 02

These shoes were made for a shallow depth of field. Again I used my 85mm portrait lens at f 1.8. By the way the light in the late afternoon was so beautiful that I did not have to use neither a strobe light nor a reflector.

Enjoy and happy photographing!
