Most people would title this post "Photo Shoot for the magazine", it sounds great, but it would imply that I know how to take photo's or shoot pictures.
My big girl camera (SLR) just got delivered on Friday. It was great having it in time to take the pictures. But, I have not had time to learn how to use it.....I'm trying!
So, the magazine wanted my project to have a Christmas theme. Well, having flowers and greenery as a back drop was not going to work!
Nope, it's not looking like the holidays.
I was driving down the road thinking what could I use for a back drop.....There, on the side of the road, was a pile of old siding from a house!
I threw them in the trunk, took them home and nailed them to a couple of boards
Then painted and dark glazed them
And I had the perfect back drop for my top secret magazine photo's. It looks like an old building
I just set the chair in front of the boards then sat on my little green chair and shot away
I took a couple hundred pictures, narrowed it down to 72 made a CD of the pictures and mailed them off to the magazine....I hope a couple are magazine worthy!
So, the magazine will be on new stands in October, Of course I will remind you when it comes out.
Now, where was I......Oh yes, I was working on transforming the 80's light fixture I found last week at the estate sale, stayed tuned.
And thank you for all of your very kind coments and congratulations. I am sure everyone thinks this, but I know,
I have the kindest followers in all of blog land!
