Creative Prompt

Make Something New 12 – Lightpad

This time our creative prompt is more of a specific challenge – to use a lightpad to create an interesting backlit photo. You may be thinking, “I don’t have a lightpad” but you likely do. A lightpad is just a flat, lit surface to place your subject on in order to back (or through!) light it. You can use any iPad, monitor, TV screen or even a sunlit window as a lightpad.

Remember that visually, darkness is the only way that we are able to perceive light – the whole yin and yang of realities.

Make Something New Update

This past week was severely challenging at our house and as a result I am going to let the “home” creativity prompt run for a second week. I feel a bit guilty about this, but hopefully the overall result will be that more people have time to participate.

Make Something New 06 – home

This week’s creative prompt is “home”. Home is something hugely relevant to us at the moment. As a result of the pandemic and the ensuing travel restrictions and lockdowns, most of us have spent more time at home in the last few months than is “normal”. What does home mean to you? How has being home so much affected you? What is different about your home during the lockdown period?
