I’m issuing a challenge for October – to myself and to you too – if you’d like to join me – to find 15 images within our own circumstances (whatever they are).. only for October. All are welcome!
Look at ordinary things – look at objects, people or animals, reflections, movement – watch the light and shadow – look at textures (on a tree or a wall or textiles?) – look at organic and man made – look closely and look far away. In focus or not in focus.. Moody or a lighter feel (try different exposures and aperture too). Experiment. Find what appeals to you. It is very different for everybody.
..and don’t feel that it has to be a special way of doing things – just try different things!
Try to see things differently and see what we can find. Set up a Still Life, especially if you never have before and try shooting near a window, even on a dark grey day. Pick up a leaf – you might be amazed. Check out a spider web or a car headlight..
Try shooting in portrait and landscape ratios.
Use what you have – phone, camera, tablet.. however you shoot.
I’m issuing this challenge because I’ve noticed there are people feeling like me. Perhaps a bit uninspired by the weather (me) or their circumstances… or even the Season.
It’s good to see differently and to try different things… It really doesn’t matter if it’s a dismal failure – at least we’ve tried something different or new and this may lead us to seeing differently the next time… or we might make a great discovery of a different style we quite enjoy. This is what I find anyway.
Try different things with processing the image too!
So, because I’ve even been a bit unmotivated with blogging lately (not much to talk about.. and now 2 posts in 1 day!), I’m going to see if I can find 15 images this October for this challenge – there are no limitations as long as it is interesting (to me) and a bit of a discovery – whatever that means.. 😉
If you do join me – Tag with: #seedifferently2016 so we can find you..
..and share it on your Blog or Instagram, Facebook, Flickr? – this way we can check out your posts. Link up to my post too, so we can find you.
If you’re interested and you know someone else who might be too, please share this post.
I hope we can inspire each other to see differently throughout October.
Here are a few images that were seeing differently for me – ordinary, everyday things, because those are my circumstances.
Take a photo even on a windy or rainy day!
Anyone is welcome to join me and if you can’t I hope you might be inspired to try something new!
I hope to make some discoveries – even if just finding some beautiful light. That’s the best discovery!
So, I’m off to find my first image of 15 for October 😀
