Welcome to the latest edition of the Photography Styling Challenge, the first one in the New Year. Are your resolutions already forgotten? Just kidding!!
This month’s concept is Chaos. To make it interesting, there is also a constraint to use 3 items from last month’s Order shoot.
Let me start with a chaotic shot of my handbag and its contents. I have used almost all the same items last month for the Order shoot. Do check out the link to jog your memory. I added few more items by dumping the contents of the wallet and the cosmetics bag.
1. Ladies’ Handbag
This is exactly what I do to find stuff buried in the dark depths of my bag. And it happens far too often for my liking!
I hope I satisfied the constraint of using at least 3 items from last month.
And now for some fun shots.
2. Gift Wrapping Madness
I was wrapping gifts for Christmas (by spreading everything on our bed, which is really how I work), when I had this sudden urge to try styling some chaotic madness. And when I say I ‘styled’ this shoot, I use the term very lightly! I threw some random stuff on the bed and chucked the rest of it under the bed.
Here are a few shots.
The shiny bags didn’t help me one bit. They reflected light every way and gave this weird disco ball-ish effect. But I think the bright, preppy colors are sort of fun and the perfect antidote to this cold January morning.
Chaos is all around us. But this month’s concept made me realize that capturing chaos in a tasteful manner is really very tough. I cannot post a photo of my kitchen sink or our living room by the end of the day, without probably disgusting you and driving you away from my blog for ever!
I am really intrigued to learn how it can be done. So before you go, be sure to check out the other posts at these participating blogs.
As always, please leave your feedback, let me know what I could have done differently, and be sure to check out next month’s post on the concept ‘Patterns‘. That should be fun!
