My favorite crafty ladies over at A Beautiful Mess blog have released a photo idea book. Since their photography is probably my favorite thing about the blog, I couldn’t wait to pick up a copy. This book does not focused on technical skills. It’s more a collection of ideas meant to inspire readers, and that’s exactly what it’s done for me. As I try out ideas from the book, I want to share them on my own blog. Hopefully this post will be the first of a series.
One idea that jumped out at me was “photograph a collection.” My largest collection is obviously my books, but I wanted to try something different. In the past two years, I have also gathered quite a collection of dresses. They’re my favorite for work or a night out. Or really, almost anytime. I love bright colors, stripes, and patterns, and somehow that translates to a lot of pink dresses. I decided to focus on those instead of tackling the whole collection.
Here’s an ode to pink, patterns, and creative cropping.
