My Motif: Flowers
The prompt this week for my Picture Inspiration class (see link to the right) is “What’s Your Motif?”.
Motif def. ~ a distinctive and recurring form, shape, figure, etc, in a design, as in a painting or on wallpaper.
I must admit that I’ve spent a lot of time thinking about this prompt. And for a while I couldn’t figure out what to photograph. Photographing patterns in wallpaper, pillows or other decor didn’t appeal to me at all. When I choose a photo out of the many that I take I consider whether it is frame-worthy, if not I don’t usually publish it online. Taking photos of my decor fell in that not frame-worthy category. But then I got to thinking about my decor… the interior, the jewelry I make and wear, my clothing, my garden… and there is a definite theme or motif and it’s flowers!
Linking up with Paper Heart Camera and their Show and Tell Challenge: Under.
I tried several different ways to convey my floral motif. In the shot above I dared to place my camera on the ground and shot up utilizing the wireless remote. It was a cloudy day so I added a texture to make the sky more appealing
I have a couple more ideas for my motif that I will attempt before our new prompt is released on Thursday.
