Wanted to share this fun DIY pom pom bouquet I made for our Beach Room. (Yes, I named many of our rooms because…well, why not?!!)
I made pom poms with my kids, collected sticks around our neighborhood, washed a bottle from a drink I had, and used shells the kids gathered on the beach last Summer.
I love the result! The bouquet gives the room a touch of whimsy and fun!
How is this related to Photography?
Well, it isn’t. But it turned out to be because I decided to photograph it. So it became a mini shoot of an item, like a Product Shoot.
If you’re ever needing creative inspiration or have time in your busy schedule, I encourage you to try it on an everyday item or a special item, if you prefer. It can be anything, even a fork. Really.
Task yourself with finding a way to shoot that item to make it look its best. Give yourself a time limit. What kind of light will compliment that item the most? Where can you place it? How would you arrange it? What angle would you shoot it at? What settings would you have? How would you compose the image?
This is a great 5 minute activity that can be helpful for any experience level! I’ve been doing this for years to spark creative juices, and these mini shoots have helped me on my client photoshoots. 🙂
