Getting crafty for Valentine's day. I heard this idea and thought it would be fun to try out.
The pictures didn't come out exactly as I thought they would but I think it is because it was so wonderfully bright and sunny outside today! We may have to try this again sometime though, because I really like the way some of the pictures came out!
Step 1: Find empty paper towel roll.
Step 2: Mold towel roll into a heart shape.
Step 3: Hold heart shaped towel roll in front of camera to shoot through.
Step 4: (This is the one we had trouble with) Convince your kids to cooperate! Because there was such a small area to shoot through, any wiggling really made it a strange picture.
Cooperation came to a standstill, so I thought I'd take a few shots of things that were NOT moving targets.
Like grass. . .
and brick walls. . .
and the fence.
And then I thought, "I kinda like these shots, too!"
Finally, I got some shots of Will when he was at a moment of less movement.
Then we took our paper towel roll heart and turned it into a stamp by dipping it into a cup of paint to make some Valentines for Daddy.
Happy Valentine's Day!
