Today’s Daily Shoot assignment was “repeating patterns.” I really didn’t have the time I would have liked to devote to working on this assignment – I enjoy repeating patterns in photos, and I wanted to find something really interesting – but I also wanted to show off my new basket, so I guess it worked out.
I didn’t want a standard, boring snapshot of a basket. For my first shots I zoomed in on the repeating patterns in this handmade basket. For those who are interested, I just purchased this from the African man making them at our local festival.
After shooting just for the assignment, I decided to take some shots to show off my beautiful basket. I didn’t like any of the angles I tried showing off the entire thing, so I zoomed in a bit more and just included enough to “describe” the basket without looking like boring stock photography.
In case you can’t tell, I just love this basket. I almost talked myself out of spending the money on it, but my mother and my husband both told me I’d be sorry if I didn’t get it. They were right. I’ve been using it to carry everything everywhere!
Here’s a bonus of the basket creator working –this was taken with my Palm Pre Plus.
