And so, in the blink of an eye, another styling challenge is upon us. For this one, the theme is Chaos, but the stipulation is that at least three of the objects from the previous styling challenge, Order, must be used. Unfortunately, I did my order shoot in Louisiana (pictures posted here), and I am spending the holidays with my family in New York. To remedy this situation, I thought I would take pictures of a similar task (which, for me, was baking a pumpkin cheese bread in preparation for Thanksgiving), but with chaos in mind.
I have to say, baking in a chaotic manner was difficult for me. As I tried to set up the shoot, it just looked more and more organized. This first set of pictures I took while my sister was baking a Pear tarte Tatine.
I thought the jumbled pile of pear’s glistening in the light represented chaos, but it wasn’t too distracting to the eye. In the second photo, I took the advice of Anjana from At the Corner of Happy and Harried about the benefits of focused cropping. These two were the only photos I liked to come out of that session. The others were more chaos without the style.
The following day, I decided to bake some pumpkin scones (which were delicious, by the way, and I’ve attached the recipe to the end of this post). I took the opportunity to take some more styled shots.
So, those are my submissions for this month’s challenge. I’m definitely learning a lot as I make my way through these challenges, especially with the inspiration I get from the other participants’ posts. Truly looking forward to the feedback, so be sure to leave some comments! (Scroll down to check out the other participants in this challenge, and for the scone recipe!)
