For my first challenge in my new role of assistant challenge admin, I’m not going to give you a theme. Instead, I’m going to suggest an exercise for you to do this week. Don’t worry, it’s an easy one!
The idea is that it won’t take up much time (so even the busiest of you should be able to find space in your week for it!) but it should get you looking at your surroundings in a new, more “photographic” way.
You will need:
- A camera (obviously!)
- Some kind of stopwatch, clock, or egg timer
- 5 minutes of your time
What I want you to do, is find a location (any location, it doesn’t matter. It could be your front room, your garden, a local park or the top of everest if you happen to be in the area!) set your timer or alarm for 5 minutes. Then start shooting!
Take as many different photos as you can in that 5 minute period.
When the timer goes off, stop shooting and put your camera away (no over running!) When you get home, go back through what you’ve shot and show us the one you like best.
We’re aiming for quantity, so shoot quickly, don’t bother looking at the LCD to see what you’ve just taken a photo of. Try to make each photo you take in those 5 minutes different in some way (so don’t just take 50 photos of your dog!)
I realise this may take a few of you slightly outside your photo-challenge comfort zone, but please give it a go, and let us know how you got on!
So get your entries in by noon on Tuesday 3rd March, and don’t forget, the new rules apply!
