Focused on photography

Four props to be composed

Another one from Kim Klassen’s assignments in the Be still 52 project was to take the following four things and make a photo with them:

a loaf of bread * linen * twine * scissors

Any necessary additional props could have been used.

I decided to keep it simple and added just a chopping board and a piece of paper to wind the twine onto in some photos. Also, I decided to match the colour of the scissors I had chosen with the colour of the dish towel to limit the number of colours in the image and simplify the scene.

As many times before with this kind of photos, I was quite taken aback by the difficulty of creating a really attractive composition. It definitely looks much easier than it actually is. But it felt interesting and creative to open myself to possibilities. I tried various versions and liked most the three presented images, the first being my favourite.
