3kcbwday2 : Photography Challenge(d)

Photography Challenge Day! Today challenges you to be creative with your photography, and get yourself in with the chance to win the photography prize. Taking interesting photographs in this instance isn't about flashy cameras or a great deal of technical know-how, it's about setting up a story or scene in a photograph and capturing something imaginative. Your photograph(s) should feature something related to your craft, so that might be either a knitted or crocheted item, yarn, or one of your craft tools. One example of setting a scene would be to photograph a girl in a knitted red cape walking through the woodlands with a basket of goodies, as in the Red Riding Hood tale, or you might photograph a knitted gnome hiding among the flowers in your garden. Photo editing is permitted for competition photos. Here are a few examples of my own photographs to illustrate an imaginative use of photography, but you can do much better than these...

Okay. I kind of ran out of time (and ideas) for this one. That's not a good sign, right? Day two and I'm already scrambling for ideas?

After panicking for a few days, when Monkey passed out last night, I was struck by a "brilliant" idea. Glasglow was more than happy to assist, and thus, these photos were created. My monster buddy can't turn down an opportunity to snuggle and be mischievous- especially not at the same time! I can't believe Monkey slept through our posing, as Glasglow and I were giggling loud enough to wake the dead.


Monkey still hasn't seen these yet. Hopefully, when he does, he won't be grumpy about it!

Also, note to self: when rotating pictures, rotate words as well. D'oh.
