Anyway, here's my photograph for the weekly photography challenge on A Step in the Journey. This week's theme was from a high angle.
Hard Day's Work
When I first saw this theme I thought, 'That should be easy!'
Boy was I wrong.
I didn't get a chance to take any pictures for this until today; it was raining outside so I ran around looking for a subject! Then I found my newest pair of boots, bought when I went to London recently. (I am a boot fiend, I was actually shopping for shoes!)
Originally I thought of shooting from directly above the object, but that didn't work for me so I chose this angle instead.
My camera wanted me to use a flash, which I didn't want to do, so out came the tripod! Since the pictures were coming out a little flat without extra lighting, I used a high-wattage lamp to create more light and shadow without getting that horrible dark-and-shiny effect that the flash tends to have.
