Still Life

Plastic

I have to confess that still life photography is difficult for me.  I much prefer photographing things in their natural state.  In this case, the leaf was still and it represents life so I'm calling it still life.  Because of my purist tendencies, I also don't tend toward a lot of filters, etc. when I edit.  But because today's sub prompt is plastic, I stepped outside my comfort zone and played a little.

I used some high-tech materials - plastic wrap, a rubber band, and a permanent marker.  Covering your lens with a piece of kitchen plastic wrap secured with a rubber band creates this kind of dreamy feel.  If you want to add a bit of moodiness, which I did here, color the plastic wrap with permanent marker.  Try different colors and notice how they change the feel of the image.  So that you don't accidentally get permanent marker on your lens, lay the plastic flat, draw around your lens cap, and hen color inside the circle.

Whatever you choose to photograph, play a little while doing so!
