Photo Safari Week 1
Eight out of fifteen. Mainly, because I couldn’t find the others because I’m stuck at home for the day. The ones that I did do are listed below.
- Take a photo dominated by a single color.
- Take a photo at an unusual angle, e.g. looking up at something or looking down at something, or from the view of an ant.
- Take a photo of someone else’s shoe or foot.
- Take a photo of two things that do not belong together.
- Take a photo that shows a repeating pattern.
- Take a photo where you move the camera as you take the photo, so it gives the subject a suggestion of motion.
- Take a photo that is looking through a frame or opening to something else.
- Make a photo that is abstract, that would make someone ask, “Is that a photograph?”
These were easy to find within the vicinity. It wasn’t that odd of an experience, seeing as I sometimes go on a “safari” of my own because I like to play with filters on my phone. I never go about it looking for something specific, but when I come across something fun, I snap a picture of it. This time felt, odd, I guess, seeing as I had a list and no idea where to start. Really, the ones that I didn’t capture took most of my time, because I just walked around my house, trying to find something.
I didn’t find it that fun nor did I find that I learned anything from this activity? If it’s supposed to teach me about being given an assignment and then fulfilling that assignment, then, yes, I did learn something. Sometimes it’s not possible to complete everything on a list when you don’t have the resources nor are given the time to do so.
I guess that’s a normal part of everyday life.
