Keeping It Simple

It's amazing how something as simple as a brown paper bag can make a photo look special!

Some gourds and a pumpkin from our local market.  I made my own bokeh brush in PSE and added it to the photo.


Flowers in a water glass placed inside the paper bag and tied with baker's string.  Two versions of the same bag shot in different light.

I would have never thought to pull out a brown bag and use it to add texture and interest and tone to a picture. As always, well done and inspiring.

Yes, you are right - that little brown bag adds so much to a picture. Love both of your images for today. Those pumpkins are the very picture of autumn!
