I really like the idea of this photo. I think it would have turned out a lot better if I had had three of the same size lipstick and the shades were more of a progression rather than the dark red-red- pink there is now. It would have been nice if they were all the exact same shape as well. I tried to fix the shape in photoshop but it did not look natural so I just left them as is. This photo was really hard to take because I had to find an angle that made it look like like the one in the front was the shortest/smallest and the back was the tallest/largest while in reality the two front lip sticks are the exact smae height.
As I was beginning to think about this challenge, I knew that I wanted to create a word that made my viewer feel something. I wanted my photos to create a powerful atmosphere. I started brainstorming powerful and beautiful words. I had many words but this one stuck out to me the most. Solitude. I think solitude is such a beautiful word. I tried to spell the word with all objects, except the I. I thought it added a lot to my photo to have the I be a person and the rest of the letters made of materials that are not interactive. I feel like this really helped create a feeling of solitude. I think the colour and cooling look to each letter really makes the word stand out even more.
I really love this photo challenge! I love winter because I think it allows us to see everything in a new way. Snow provides a clean, white covering on everything. It makes things appear new, pure, untouched, almost perfect. I was really disappointed with the amount of snow we got this year. I managed to get a few photos while we had snow, but had been hoping to get some better photos when the snow came back, and it never did. I had really wanted to get some macro photos on a nice camera but realized I would have to settle with these photos taken with my phone when the snow did not return.
