#PssSaturdayStillLife

Hello again, Julz here, following on from a recent post about D.I.Y home natural dyes for cheesecloth, I thought I would stage a little Still Life shoot for today’s post, using this fabulous vintage scotch box and a few lovely flowers.

#pssThursdayTheme – Reflections

This week I thought I would use reflections for our theme, any reflections; in a mirror, in water, a puddle, a window. So much can be done with reflections and it is a lot of fun capturing them.

This one was shot at BlueLotus Water Gardens in the Yarra Valley, last Summer. Lotus blossom’s need about 8 eight a day of direct sunlight, they close up each night and open again each morning. Many have used the Lotus Blossom as a religious or pagan icon and is often a token or symbol of rebirth.

Share your Reflections pictures with us and don’t forget to hashtag them #PssThurdayThemes and #PixelSistersStudio.

#PssMondayMacro

Hi, Julz, here again, for another week. Today is Monday, so that means Macro. Yesterday we went for a lovely long drive in the wonderful Spring sunshine, I thought I would post a few images from our wonderful day in the country.

These were all taken at the Pyalong Trestle Bridge…on Central Northern Victoria about 2.5 hours from Melbourne.

Happy Saturday! Julz here again, Yay it’s my birthday, so I bought myself a little present, and why wouldn’t I? This is a lovely old(possible replica) timber scotch box and it was only $5.00, fabulous!!

So I had a little play around with it and did three different set ups, used some hand dyed cheesecloth from yesterday’s post; this time, green tea, it makes a lovely natural ecru color, isn’t it simply divine?

#PssWednesdayWords

Juz here, I have been on a bit of a Shakespeare thing of late, it’s possible to do with a recent discussion with my Daughter about the merits of various different plays. My favorites are Romeo and Juliet (I adore the movie version by Tarantino by the way!), and another is Midsummer Night’s Dream.

Love is Blind

I took this shot later one balmy evening last Summer, the smell from this Japenese Ladies…..is divine, similar to lavender, but not as strong or intoxicating. I guess I am craving those balmy Summer evenings, It has been such a long cold Winter and those sweet heady days are only a few short months away.

I created today’s #PssWednesdayWords image in #Canva is really is a fabulous tool for quick edits on the fly, so glad Desley introduced it to us a few weeks back. Don’t forget to share your poem, quote or words of inspiration and hashtag it #PssWednesdayWords and #PixelSistersStudio.

#pssFridayFeature – Selling Your Photos

Welcome to #pssFridayFeature.

This week, we wanted to share something a little different. I like to read the New York Institute of Photography articles sometimes and I found this one, to be quite interesting.

I don’t yet do anything about selling my photos. I post on social media and my blog but otherwise, I don’t have any “selling” set up. It’s something I’ve thought about, but never done anything about.

This article gives you some good tips on what to try.

I hope you find it interesting: Selling Your Photos.
