Recently I was asked just how many photo shoots do I do? (Because I always seem to be buying flowers for them). Well, I had a bit of a count today for the next few issues of Vignette magazine. It seems that for Vignette issue 11 I did 15 shoots (plus step by steps when stitching etc) and here I am today on my 12th photo shoot for Vignette 13!
I started adding up just how many photos I take (after the shocking deletes!) and there's between 600-1000 for each issue. Okay, I admit it, if I don't think a particular shot is right or good enough I just keep re-doing. The question I ask myself is,"If I was sitting with a champange in the bath reading this does this photo being me joy?/does it tell a story?/is the story positive?/if I'm in the sewing room does it really assist in making the project?...etc...."
So these photos above did not make the cut for Vignette 13. I still love the colors, the light, the simple sunshine in the early morning. This one below I kinda played with because it was a 'reject'. I think I improved it:
