Homework – In or on a Crate


(applied Kim Klassen’s ‘moodwsing’ preset)

The assignment this last week was to create a still life in or on a crate. I was gonna take a pass on this assignment. I don’t have a crate and wasn’t about to run out and buy one. I had some woven bins but they were small. But then I got to thinking, My still life objects could be small enough to fit so decided to give it a go.


(applied Kim’s ‘days of old’ preset)

Once I set up my scene, I decided to take pictures from different points of view and try out some of Kim’s presets.


(applied Kim’s ‘within’ preset)


(Kim’s ‘within’ preset also applied to this one, which I tweaked a bit…well maybe more than a bit!)


At the end of the day I’m glad I didn’t pass up on this assignment. It gave me a chance to think outside the box…or I guess inside the box in this case!

Thanks so much for popping in! Have a great day.

  1. I do that a lot with prompts, they just don’t speak to me and then I guess it is in my mind during the week and something usually comes to me. I am not a person who likes prompts, so prompts are a challenge for me. Sometimes they are just not my thing and I move on. I did the same with this prompt and then I had the same idea with a basket and shelf. One other thing I don’t like to look at others doing the prompt before hand, because it influences what I think I should do. I really like the close up on the last one a lot Carol. Have a beautiful Hump day and hope you see a camel!

    I think this worked really well, Carol. My favorite is the second one – I like the point of view, the softness, and especially the touch of those little fallen petals.

    I had trouble with this one also…but did it anyways…let me just say, yours came out a lot better than mine…sometimes I need to stay “inside the box”…
    I love your choice of the box and the contents…
