Once again I’ve been reminded of the importance of making the most of and working with what we already have.
No new tool is going to solve our problems, and a bigger studio isn’t going to make a masterpiece, though it can certainly make the attempt easier!
This portrait was photographed in the new ‘studio’, the thin strip of area in the bedroom that isn’t occupied by a bed and a dresser.
Although the shoot was spent carefully trying not to trip over tripods, lights, or furniture, this came into being. And although I don’t have any ‘proper’ gels, or even the tissue paper I’d saved for the occasion, a red curtain wrapped around the flashgun worked wonders.
When we’re packed into a space that’s a bit too small to our liking, we have to work with what we have. We can only make so much room, so it’s often better to be creative than go shopping and bring more stuff home.
Here’s to being creative with our current options, and creating art we love in the space and with the tools we have!
Much Peace and Keep Roamin’
