Its Thursday....I have so been looking forward to Thursday's since joining this challenge.
Its week 6 and Christina and I chose the theme SOFT. I have to admit that what seemed like a simple task kinda felt a little difficult to me. As a matter of fact, Christina and I found out yesterday that our intentions for this week were the same thing! Both of our first thoughts were to shoot our little girls blankies. While Christina was successful....The closer I got to Ella's blankie, the more it looked like a worn out and dirty rug to me. So I had to kabosh that idea.
I love how Christina chose to put some texture in her shot. She has always been very good at adding texture, whereas I never mastered that skill. Besides the texture added in post processing, the texture of the blanket has a strong presence in the picture too. A soft "security" blankie is something a child never forgets! Knowing that it is Nadia's, I just look at it and find myself wondering so many things....When are the times Nadia feels she needs her blankie....Where she got it (as it looks handmade)...When she decided that this specific blankie was going to be "the one"...And so on. It leaves alot of room to figure out the feelings of what the blankie represents. I love an image that makes you think more, no matter what the subject.
So as I said, I found this to be kind of a trying theme since my one and only thought didn't work out for me. I didn't want to do the obvious...but the only other thing that kept sticking in my head was feathers. SOFT feathers. While shopping at Michael's the other day, I came across this feathered boa that was all wrapped up. It was SO SOFT and I thought, "I have to make this work..or I'm screwed." :0)
Thankfully, I am pretty satisfied with my shot for this week.
Looking forward to seeing everyone's dip's!
