Still Love These Scissors!

I remember when I started in with BeStill-52 last year, everyone seemed to be using these cool scissors in all their photos.

20150131-DSC_1781_melinda_andersonI was resolved to avoid buying props for my still life photos, figuring photography was a hobby I could barely afford anyway- why spend more on props?  But I LOVED them- and, after searching our nurseries, craft stores and hardware stores, I googled “scissors”  and finally discovered they are used for bonsai.  They come in all price ranges- and, of course I got the cheapest I could find.  I bought a set of two, this one being the photoworthy ones. I actually keep the other pair in the kitchen and use them all the time when I cut flowers (which I usually do on a weekly basis).

20150131-DSC_1784_melinda_andersonThe Studio has a Facebook group, and I noticed the other day that one of the new members asked about the cool scissors someone had in their photo. I guess I wasn’t the last photographer to be clued in!

  1. Yes they are cool, I have had mine for so long it seems they are OLD like me. I used them at the florist along with my Swiss knife to cut all stems. These were used to cut heavier stems, they slice like butter. Love your images with them in the background, beautiful editing. Oh and I got mine at a Japanese store in San Jose, so cheap but you would never know it as they have lasted a long time.
