Delighted to share that I have a new article, “Use you camera as a Design Tool” in the August/September 2018 (just came out) issue of Quilting Arts magazine. The article is inspired by my “Inspiration in the Ordinary” lecture which encourages quilters–traditional, art, modern, any and every kind–to look for inspiration in the world around them. All the photos in this quilt and in my lecture were taken in my daily dog walkies and a couple forays (to the farmer’s market).
There are examples of my world (including my slippers), some challenges for you to try to think, or re-think, how you approach design. After all, good design, a good composition, is just that. It doesn’t matter if it is a photograph, a quilt, a painting, a garden. The same principles apply. In the next couple of weeks I’ll share a few more tidbits that didn’t fit into the article so by coming to my blog, you get even more! Here’s today’s tidbit: pause briefly and take three shots changing only the horizon line.
I’ll be back soon with more tidbits!
