Photographers are violent people. First they frame you, then they shoot you, then they hang you on the wall!” – Anonymous
The Weekend photo challenge on Weekly Prompts the site GC and I share is EDIT.
We asked our readers if they stage manage their photos, do they take the background into consideration before taking pictures and do they edit before uploading.
As pink is one of my favourite colours, this year for Valentine’s Day I received twelve beautiful pink and white roses. The gift gave rise to a creative idea, a stage-managed photo shoot.
Taking two shelves from my son’s discarded Ikea bookcase, I set about making a backdrop. I clipped some of the roses and using a small glass jar and candles I created my display. I could have done this digitally, but this way was more satisfying.
After using my phone to take this photograph, I cropped the picture, wrote my message and e-mailed my newly created Valentine e-card!
This is not the calf’s mother; she is his babysitter! Perhaps I should have performed a pre-edit and cut down the nettles before I took this photo.
What a brave little brown calf coming up close to say hello.
