One of my goals for photos is to capture interesting, seasonally related photos that I can rotate into frames around the house to help highlight the season.
My mom has this neat photo of pumpkins in an old, gray cart. It's a fabulous photo. So I wanted a photo like that!
I came across a neighborhood in Watertown where they've got a wagon full of pumpkins. My first photo-shoot out there was around a month ago. I tried my Lensbaby lenses but none of the photos looked good. So I ventured back out and tried again with a more traditional lens.
I desaturated in Photoshop and came up a photo I really kind of liked because it made the wagon look a little more old-timey. Below is how the wagon looked in real-life.
It's not terrible, but none of the photos I captured left me feeling excited or particularly interested either. But I am pretty happy with the processed version at the top. Thanks Topaz!
Tonight I am playing around with photographing candy and S-curves. Stay tuned!
