#26 on my 100 Ways To Be Creative list is to take an illusion type photo. I decided that I wanted to incorporate sidewalk chalk and my cartoon-like purse. For almost the entire photoshoot I was trying to make it seem like I was climbing up the stairs, and it just wasn’t turning out the way I wanted.
But then I had this epiphany (that seems so silly now), that I could walk down the stairs. You know what, though? I made the stairs and I can do whatever I want with them. I felt like this might have been my favorite thing I’ve done from this list, just because of how I felt creative once I realized I could turn the project upside down.
And once you turn the project upside down, you get it right on the first take.
