Bored, Nothing to Do?
22 Jun 2012
When you have to choose from a world of subjects, it can be hard to focus on a single idea or theme. Here is an idea for those days when you feel like shooting, but the weather is bad, or you just can't decide what to photograph. Pick a room in your house (or any other convenient location) and make several photographs of things in the room. You might even try making light the subject of some images. Get creative. Try shooting from the floor looking up, or above a subject looking down. Try standing back and shooting up close. This exercise can help fill the time, and, who knows, maybe you will learn something about light, exposure or depth-of-field in the process. You may even discover a whole new realm of subject matter worth further exploration.
I have notice in trying to post this story that JPG requires a minimum of 300 words. That might not seem like a lot of words, and in another story, I might easily find more to write about. However, I have learned in teaching that it is best to keep things simple and to get to the point. I think that I have said what I have to say in the paragraph above, and that I have accomplished what I set out to do. So, I am thinking, "That should be the end of it. Why continue to add verbiage when you have said what you have to say? But I notice that I need thirty more words, The easiest thing to do is to just keep typing until my quota is met. Well now, that should do it. Please feel free to disregard this paragraph as it does not add anything of importance to what I have already written. Have fun with your project.
