Canon Photo 5 Competition 2011

If you haven’t heard, Canon run a competition every year called the Canon Photo 5. They send out a cardboard box to registered participants containing briefs.

The objects must be used in the creation of 5 different photos. In the past I have entered, never won but it is such fun to try and come up with a creative idea.

This year the four briefs are: Powder – Fast Shutter,  Foam- Macro, Ribbon – Panning, Sequins – Low Light, and the open brief, Through a Pet’s Eyes.

I have done 3 of the 5 entries so far.

I don’t think I will win anything with these photos but it is fun to try. The most difficult part is coming up with something no one else has done, I think of ideas and then log on and someone has already done it, so then I have to try think of something else.

Hopefully I will get all the briefs completed in time!

Have you entered the Canon Photo 5 before? What do you like/dislike about the competition?

Book Week 2011

We used some wire coat hanger bend over the top of her head and then plaited around it. Then we spray painted her hair with orange hair spray, freckles added with a lip liner. I found this link to help with the hair…How to Pippi Longstocking Braids
