"Everything has its beauty but not everyone sees it."
We've all heard the phrase "It's all in the details" but most of us are so busy
it's easy to miss the beauty in those little things that fill our everyday lives.
As the frantic holiday season is upon us,
let's take a breath and try to savor those details before they slip away.
In photography, as in painting, we must notice the details
in our compositions for our pictures to work like . . .
a candle in a twisted metal holder reflected in a mirror,
simple lines of a birdcage against a sheer curtain on a winter's day,
white flowers reflected in an oval mirror,
scalloped lace edging against a contrasting texture,
brass and enamel knob on an old oak cabinet,
intricate designs on vintage silver,
delicate detail in a gesso mirror frame,
a preserved leaf in an old book,
and the way light and shadow play on a vintage metal stand.
When your families and loved one gather this season,
take a moment to notice the smallest details of your life:
your mother's hands, a child's smile, snow floating by your window,
the colors of the flames in your fireplace.
Life is in the details.
What little things would you photograph for your composition?
Thank you for stopping by and I hope you have a Merry Christmas!
