|Friends on Chelsea Lane BLOOM block under my Sedum JOY|
Joy in a picture.
How do you capture it,
in a way to bring someone else joy too?
I am thinking more and more about "staging" photographs.

As a maker, I love to see process shots. In these photos I like to see detail of what's going on. I don't look at these types of photos for inspiration as much as how to do it and how to take my own process shots. If I'm studying them it because I'm already curious and/or inspired.

Sometimes I get inspired by the stage set by the maker. I see colors in a different way. Or possibilities that I hadn't thought of before they shared the bigger vision of the project.

Sometimes I just want to look at something pretty and be inspired.
Smiling at what someone else made is inspiration enough to go and make my own thing.
Find some inspiration photos from more Canadian quilters here - The Needle and Thread Network.
