I know a lot of you have been seeing and reading about the Hobby Lobby and Michaels photo challenges, well me being the photography student that I am, I felt like this would be a wonderful learning experience for me.
We began our challenge at Michaels Craft Store in Mooresville, NC. My beautiful model, Kelly, helped me out with both of the challenges and she did an amazing job. I used flowers, greenery and the amazing lighting at Michaels to create stunning images.
The challenge is to create beautiful images in places that aren't normally considered beautiful. I don't think I have ever had someone ask me to go take their portraits in a store of any kind, and when I recommend it they think I am loony! In my opinion, the backdrop makes the image, and as photographers we always look for beautiful backdrops to make our job "easy", but why not accept a little challenge and have some fun with it!
The second stop was at the very well known Hobby Lobby, and as most people know, Hobby Lobby has EVERYTHING and ANYTHING! I started this challenge in the floral section but I felt like Hobby Lobby had more to offer. I then made my way over to the greenery garland and then quickly over to the Frames! Once we finished with the Frame, which was so much fun, we needed to find a little more color so we quickly made it to the Paint and then to the fluffy feather scarves!
Hobby Lobby was a lot of fun but I will ALWAYS love Michaels a little bit more!
