It’s time to capture your everyday situations as you touch, sample, use and taste items you encounter in daily life. There is an art to capturing a real-life situation in a relatable yet artistic manner. Can you tell the story of an object and how to use it through just one image? Think about it’s attributes — is it beautiful, functional or delicious and how do you convey this feeling to your audience.
Ways to challenge yourself this week:
Choose an everyday item or product from your home and style it in use
Capture your morning beauty regime
Convey the feeling you have when using a product you love
Take a snapshot of how you, your family or pets like to eat your favorite food
Spritz on your fave perfume
Set your camera on burst mode and capture some candid moments
