The Teacup Project

The photography forum that I belong to posed a challenge to all of our members.  The challenge was to come up with an innovative project theme that forces us to shoot outside our comfort zone.  Each month for the next year we are required to submit at least one photo a month that fits within our theme.  I really wanted to participate in this challenge and I knew I needed focus on photographing some type of inanimate objects.  After much thought, I decided my theme would be “My Good China”.  When Joe and I got married we dutifully registered for “good” china which has not seen the light of day in the 12 years we have owned it.  We have five place settings and six in our family- of course the pattern has long been discontinued.  So, what better to do than to take my good china on some photographic adventures.  I’ll be posting my progress here at least once a month.

Stacy B - Arghhh. I have been wanting a lensbaby. I knew as soon as you posted yesterday this was going to be a very bad thing… I love the teacup shot! It could be an Anthropolgie shot. What a great idea for the challenge, too.

Melissa Pearson - You are amazing! What a creative idea for your theme. Can’t wait to see the places your china will go!

Since your china will be famous, I thought I’d share this with you. I had the same issues (incomplete set & discontinued pattern) with my good china and found the pieces I needed at this site
