Beneath Our Feet

Floor Studies, Photo No. 5, by Mary Gow

Continuing with the inspiration from Tyler Mitchell’s MasterClass, “Tyler Mitchell Teaches Storytelling Through Portrait Photography,” I took this photo looking at the living room floor. What you see when you look at your floor? In my July posting I mentioned Mitchell’s recommendation to take pictures every day. Observe the floor beneath our feet — that’s do-able.

Keep Looking for the Light

Do you like those vertical blinds on windows that are probably from the 1970’s? They’re pretty good for privacy. Photographing them using a filter on the Paper Artist app created a cool affect I couldn’t resist sharing.

I love this app and the 40+ filters you can use to make any photograph into a work of art.

What type of light are you looking for?

Light seeping in on the edges. Whether it’s a bright day or a dim one, blinds help you regulate light. And dark. If we could have similar filters for what we hear, oh think of that.
