Photo Tips

Photographing Details: Capturing the Cozy

For the last few months, you’ve been outside photographing details of all the beautiful flowers in your garden to vibrant sunsets.  But as the temperature drops, and we find ourselves looking for a warm, little nook in the house, why not capture the cozy details inside too?

Today’s photo exercise isn’t stressful or technical, just fun!  No need for a fancy camera.  I did all these photos with my smartphone.  In fact, this is one of my own exercises for feeding my creative juices.  What better way to start the week than to be intent on feeding your creative self?!  As you are spending time indoors or even out and about on errands with the kids, look for two things;

1. objects that are repetitive or a collection of some sort

2. objects that trigger cozy thoughts or Fall themed

The sky is the limit on this exercise!  It can be a stack of old dusty books or a row of pumpkins.

Pascaline loves to knit, so we stopped in at a yarn store recently.  The shelves and shelves of beautiful yarns made me think “COZY” right away!

    Fun photos, Me Ra! I love how you took photos of things that we may see all the time but don’t stop to pay attention to. “Cozy” makes me think of mugs of warm drinks, snuggling in blankets, and warm mittens. 🙂

    Love that you are blogging again! :). I’ve missed your words and photos. Can’t wait to hear more about what you’ve been up to!

    Love this – and have been doing this myself without thinking about it! As I knit a sweater for my granddaughter I became so aware of every stitch and how they all work together…not to mention that insane fact that the whole sweater is made from one string!
