Project 52 and POTD days: 285-287 Made with Love

I remember being a kid and seriously not believing my mom when she would tell me that "homemade gifts" and "messages from the heart" were more precious to her than anything I could buy for her. Of course, now that I am a parent, I totally get it and also prefer the treasures made or written by my sweet girl than dollar store items and the like. This is one of the handmade gifts I received for Christmas this year. It is a clay pot and you can see that I have put it to good use as a paperclip holder. Do you not love my blob of clay as much as I do?

Photographically speaking, I am still playing with my speedlight and reflector disk. I started with the white background (sort of high key) and then tried for a low key effect with the black background and then I played with the crop. I get a lot of mileage out of those 69 cent tagboard pieces! Which one do you like better?

  1. I want a speedlight, but maybe I mentioned that before?!? Anyway, I think I like the first shot the best, but might like the black background better? Seems to make the green pop a little more. Fun to see your "playtime!!" =)
