Photo blog #50: Using Props

milo rathbun – composition

In this photoblog, I was tasked with creatively taking a photo using props. I decided I wanted to use this cool lamp on my desk as my prop. I have cool paintings around my house that my family and brother made so I staged the light in front for two reasons. First I wanted the cool lighting it would provide. And second I wanted to blur it out and use it in the foreground to make the composition of this photo more mysterious, moody, and engaging.
