Last week I had a lot of fun working on photos for the I Saw Red project and decided to continue on through the color wheel in no particular order. The next color I'm working on is green. I love green, and as in nature, think of it almost as a neutral. So, there will be flowers, as usual.

Martha also has a project this week called s t i l l, which has to do with the art of still life photography. Martha mentioned a few things that I'm going to keep in mind:
- Photograph simple, everyday objects.
- Focus on the presence or absence of light.
- Frame the shot; limit the use of the crop. I think it's kind of like using a digital camera in the same manner we use film cameras. Don't rely on the luxury of Photoshop to improve the photo.
- Try to emulate some of your favorite photographers.

Please check out the flickr pool set-up for Martha's project and join in. I'm not able to say that I integrated all of her criteria into these photos (especially cropping), but I can definitely see the influence.
