I had a lot of fun with this activity. The instructions were to complete as many of the 7 activities as possible. I was able to complete 6 out of the 7 in 20 minutes! Looking for specific things to take pictures of definitely helped me get more creative and take better quality pictures than what I would normally do. Below are my findings!
2. Something that looks better in black and white
3. Make a photo of a scene looking out a window.
4. Take a photo of a light source.
I had so much trouble with this one! Since I completed this during the day, there were so many cool-looking lights, but none of them were actually on. When I saw this light I knew immediately it was perfect. I love all the shades of gold in this picture.
5. Make a photo of a noisemaker you hear.
Leaves. Yes it is a picture of leaves underneath the category of noisemaker. I chose this picture because I was in a very quiet area so I stopped to see if I could hear anything, but all I could hear were the leave rustling! I knew it wasn’t the best “noisemaker,” but it’s all I could hear at the time.
6. Two contrasting things.
I did this picture because of the contrast of the dull, boring colors on the outside of the house compared to the bright, popping blue of the door. The blue just stood out so much that I knew it was perfect.
7. An interesting clothing design or texture.
This is the fabric of the scarf I wore today. Since I was walking around Fredericksburg and only had 20 minutes, I didn’t have much time to search for other fabrics so I figured the print on my scarf would do! I like how I made the fabric up close and focused but you can still tell in the blurry background that that is my hand and watch and shirt.
This was a really fun activity and I’m glad I used different techniques of photography as well as using my own creativity to go on an adventure.
