I recently rented a book called:
Creative Photography: 52 Fun Exercises
for Developing Self-Expressionwith Your Camera,"
by Steve and Carla Sonheim.
Carla Sonheim is one of my favorite artsy authors.
Unfortunately, I didn't take a picture of the book cover,
but I'm sure you can find it at your local library or on Amazon.
So far I've only completed one of the challenges-
challenge #6- "Walk With a Blind Camera."
This was such a fun project-
even Mr. Mustard Seed joined in!
We each took a camera for a walk around our neighborhood.
(Our boys and their friends came along, too)
Mr. Mustard Seed brought a timer along, and set it for 5 minutes.
Every 5 minutes, we had to take a photo, BUT...
we couldn't look through our photo lens,
and couldn't "plan" our shots either.
The timer beeped, we grabbed our camera and snapped a shot.
I used photoshop to organize and "collage" our shots a bit.
I plan on developing them
and will probably turn some of them into postcards.
Put on your walking shoes!
You're about to come on a walk with us!
Here are my shots:
And here are some of Mr. Mustard Seed's shots:
This was definitely challenging for me,
because I am always "planning" my shots.
We decided to do this two days in a row.
The 2nd day, we set the timer for 2 minutes instead of 5.
This was really fun, and something we'll definitely do again in the future!
