One of the biggest challenges I seem to encounter when playing with my camera is finding a subject to snap. With the exception of Donegal where the picture is set up for you (and I mess it up), it’s hard to find something to snap.
So, I’ve decided to try and identify some projects or challenges for the coming weeks. Ideally each project will allow me to try something different with the camera or look into a trick or technique a little more. Most importantly, it will allow me to keep practising and playing.
So, here’s a couple of projects I’m considering.
Dice - I have a selection of many sided dice from my role-playing, some gems, some solid, most pretty. I’m going to try and get a few nice photos of them. The idea is to let me play with light using an inanimate object, solid backgrounds. That sort of thing.
Traffic - For a while now I’ve wanted to go and take some photos of traffic on my local motorway. I really like evening and night shots of car headlights and tail lights. The aim will be to play a little with shutter speed and low light exposures
Self Portrait – I have a tripod and remote and since nobody else ever wants published I may as well try this. I think I’ll try something obscure here, but it’s on my list.
Anyone any other ideas?
Oh, and I know a few people who read this are also photographers, so how about a bit of fun? We can pick a project and all try it for a week or two, then post up the results and see what we think. Kind of a fujimugs type game. Anyone interested?
