Photo prompt :: An object study

Our prompt this week is ‘a study’. Take an object (animate or inanimate) and shoot it from multiple angles/perspectives, shoot it in different lights, really get to ‘know’ your subject. We chose a floral study and shot it at it’s prime and even when it was fading, each stage offered a new photo-op. This is a perfect creative exercise for those days when you feel you don’ t have anything to shoot.

  1. After you do have a farm or two with seeds planted, you need tto create some chests tto keep your items aas part off you house.
    The 1st branch will be where thee sail starts and the 2nd branch whsre it ends
    – Step 24: Add thhe sail, make aan effort to build it using a
    curve then it provides the impresssion of needing wind behind it.
    Sure, it could take thirty minutes of your energy to complete enough surveys to earn your free game, but I would bet my last dollar that
    you will play that game to get a lot lnger than 30 minutes.
