The inspiration is in the details.

I remember taking a three dimensional design class when I was attending La Roche College in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, for my bachelors degree and discovering all the inspirational things that one can find when you zoom in and look closely at something. The very small details of an ordinary object, that everyone is so used to seeing everyday, begins too look very differently.

My professor brought in a rope that one would use to hang up laundry outside. He taught us to look closely at ordinary objects to find inspirational treasures. He proceeded to cut into the laundry rope and began to unravel the intricate woven rope material that was hidden inside, as if it were a secret. He then welcomed us to take a closer look at what he found. As we unrolled the woven fabric that held the rope together, we began to see a pattern emerge. To our surprise, the pattern was made of a cloth material, however it held another little surprise inside. When we looked closely at the unfolded fabric, we noticed little illustrated ducks imprinted on the material!!! Who knew???

After that class, I started to view ordinary objects, that I pass everyday without a second glance, much differently. I wanted to immediately take my camera out to start documenting these inspirational surprises.

Go outside (or inside) and start discovering these ordinary objects that you normally pass by each and everyday – and take macro shots (very up close...I’m talking 1 to 2 inches to your subject) and hold your camera steady (most camera’s have macro setting that you can set automatically which is represented by a flower icon). Take a lot of pictures! Enjoy what you discover and keep them for future inspiration!

We would LOVE to see what you have captured! Please share your best macro pictures with us and YOUR pictures (with your permission of course) may be posted on this Blog – Westchase Patch. We would love to display your inspirational discoveries with everyone! The images you see here are photographs that I took this year in Westchase and Ybor City.

Email your images to: binspirationalartists@gmail.com. Title your email: My Inspirational Discoveries! Also, let us know who you are, where you are from and what you took a picture of.

Make sure they are high resolution (300 dpi) - Go to your camera’s settings and choose Quality (or something related to that degree) and then choose Best or Fine(est) before taking your shots. Don’t forget to hold your camera as steady as possible (a tripod maybe necessary) and use your macro setting! (little flower icon).
