Pinned

Sometimes really interesting shots can come out of things that you just found and set up by yourself. As much as I love traveling and seeing all of these new and interesting places, I enjoy setting up and shooting my own scenes just as much.

This particular still life, for lack of a better term, is composed of some unframed painting we got in Rome, and a pincushion with an abundance of yellow pins. I liked the bright pops of color from ever dimension, and something about the mix of the ordinary (represented by the everyday household object) and the extraordinary (in something I never would have owned if I hadn’t had the opportunity to travel.)

“Every artist undresses his subject, whether human orstill life. It is his business to find essences in surfaces, and what more attractive and challenging surface than the skin around a soul?” -Richard Corliss
