I’m joining in with Clare’s (Maybush Studio) new ‘Home Life Photography Project’. As soon as I read this post detailing the project, I knew I wanted to take part. I’m always striving to try and take better photos and I personally find candid, every day family life the most interesting subject to photograph.
I must admit, sharing these photos makes me feel quite vulnerable. I’m inviting you into our home to see our cluttered corners, our messy hair (and in my case, make-up-less face), our scruffy clothes and many other less than flattering aspects of our home life! You know, the bits we normally try to hide. ;)
Date photos were taken: Sunday 3rd January 2016
Camera used: Canon G7X
Filters used: VSCO Cam 01
This Sunday was about as ordinary as it gets for us. The last day of the weekend is usually dedicated to ‘chores’ – cleaning out the guinea pig cage, dusting and vacuuming throughout the whole house, meal planning for the week ahead – that kind of stuff. All pretty mundane.
There’s a bit of repetition in this collection because I couldn’t decide between a few of the similar photos. Hopefully with your feedback, I’ll get better at the selection process!
Initially, I didn’t intend for these photographs to be in black and white. But after playing around with the first few shots and realising a B&W filter masks the bad lighting (it was hideously grey day), I stuck with it.
Which photo is your favourite?
Please leave any constructive criticism in the comments. As I mentioned earlier, I am trying to improve my photography so I really appreciate your feedback.
