Creativity Boot Camp: Fluid

boot camp
yay! a CBC post before 11 o'clock at night!
So "Fluid" really stumped me, every time I write the word I think of gross unmentionable things or trying to take a photo in the shower. However, I did think of a non-liquid interpretation of the word - that is fluid movement. I wanted to so something on a theme of yoga but didn't have the patience for the elaborate setting-up which such a photo would require. I noticed my summer white skirt laying around and though - hey, I'll try that. Here is what I got:

Let me just say that I was SO far out of my comfort zone trying to do these movement photos. Here I am swishing my skirt ungracefully trying to get enough movement so you can really see it swish.
I did something else, which I really love. I don't think it's particularly great for the theme of fluid.
So I took a break for lunch
and put Josiah down for a nap and tried for a coffee shot.

I so love my keurig coffee maker!♥ I cranked my iso to Ho3 which is a step aabove 1600 to get these shots.
I'm not particularly happy with what I ended up with, (staying with the theme word is so crazy hard) but there you go. Hopefully you did better. Do please leave a comment if you're participating in the CBC so I can check out your work from today!
