WEEK FORTY-SIX

Dollar Store

Shoot a photo or series of photos utilizing props from your local dollar store.

Something as simple as a tablecloth can create new compositions you never thought to try before. Outside of this challenge, utilizing items from your immediate environment, taking note of aspects like colors, patterns, and textures, can achieve just the same.

 

WEEK FORTY-FIVE

Windows

Shoot a photo that incorporates windows in some form.

 

WEEK FORTY-THREE

Angle

Shoot a photo at an unconventional angle.

 

The "Plankton Entering the Krusty Krab” Pose

 

By utilizing an unconventional angle, an image can stand out among generically posed posts in an instant-gratification-focused world. You can tell a new story with a new angle.

WEEK FORTY-TWO

Abstract

Shoot a photo where the composition displays an alternative perspective.

 

3 complete strangers, leading different paths in life, connected in this one moment.

 

Just by simply rotating an image, if done with the right intention, you can change the perspective and elevate the story associated with the image.

WEEK FORTY

Primary Colors

Shoot a photo that includes all of the primary colors.

 
 

WEEK THIRTY-SEVEN

Orange

Shoot a photo with a orange subject or implement orange in some other way into your image.

 
 

WEEK THIRTY-FOUR

Strangers

WEEK THIRTY-THREE

Decide on what to shoot and explain why you shot it and what you were looking for when composed the shot.

 

Eastern Bakery is Chinatown’s oldest bakery, first opened in 1924 and the only shop in the country to make their mooncakes in-house. It’s seen one change in ownership, but the same recipes to comforting pastries remain. A sense of familiarity among the years of change the city has seen. With this shot, I wanted to get an “outside looking in” perspective that also gave context to the environment, hence shooting through the window yet including the reflection of the streets.
