Prompts for 16th March were for shadow play, I know this isn’t quite what Kim planned for me to do but hey, I went with the flow and this is what I came up with…Both photos were taken with my iPhone 5s.
Taken late afternoon when the shadows were lengthening, giving the image a vintage look.
Processed in Lightroom, preset Softness of Time. Taken into Photoshop and a chalkboard texture added from FrenchKiss. I then added an overlay from Anna Aspnes AASPN_Capture.
A lighter image taken in full sun earlier in the day.
Frame by Anna Aspnes. brush by me….
“A collection of various items, parts, or ingredients.”
In this set of photographs I am wearing many hats. A Be Still Class, a prompt from The Studio. The subjects of this series are part of the family history.
The violin was owned by Mark’s great uncle Will Dermott. Will signed up to go to war when he was only 18.
He was killed in action shortly afterwards. so as you can see this instrument is precious.
The music books belonged to Mark’s mother and father, they loved music and had a piano in the music room where Pat played and Richard sang. Sometimes at Christmas when the children were little we all stood and sang carols together. We have quite a collection of originals.
We have bought some black material as a backdrop I love it, so now I can be as organic and moody as I like. Also to add to our photography equipment we have bought a little Manfrotto monopod, I can see we will be fighting over it !!!
Have a great weekend…..

This week thanks to my lovely husband and my birthday gift, I have rediscovered my love of playing with layers and digital scrapping. I have been feeling a bit meugh recently about my scrapping. I feel as if I haven’t progressed in learning new techniques. But with a larger and more beautiful screen I’m feeling enthusiastic again…. This was a page I created whilst thinking about Kim’s post in The Studio about photographing from above…
