What a difference a background change makes?!

These first two sets of photos are taken in exactly the same location and conditions, but I have merely swapped out the placemat that sits under the vase. Firstly, I used a white placemat, then swapped it for a black one.

I have been thinking about adding a new idea to RegularRandom. Usually, we spend 5 minutes shooting a single scene, without interfering with the scene. I’d like to introduce a new variation – take a single object (in this case a vase of flowers) and shoot it in different locations.

Stick to the 5 minute rule, that’s what makes it fun, but see what you can come up with!



Would you like to join in the RegularRandom crew? Here’s how:

Version 1:

  • choose a subject or a scene
  • spend five minutes photographing it – no more!
  • try to not interfere with the subject, instead see it from many angles, look through something at it, change the light that’s hitting it
  • have fun!
  • tag your post #regularrandom and ping back to this post


Version 2:

  • choose an object
  • spend five minutes photographing it – no more!
  • put the object in different locations to see how the background or surroundings can change the way the object looks
  • have fun!
  • tag your post #regularrandom and ping back to this post

Looking forward to seeing your shots.
