How often do we stick to the rules and end up with the same photo over and over? The landscape with the horizon off center and some foreground interest, the flower perfectly composed and in focus, the portrait with the head tilted just so or the still life composed precisely using the rule of thirds... Classic or cliche? Let's get out of our comfort zones and try to expand our imaginations a bit. I confess I have totally stolen this idea from someone else with only a few modifications. 1 - Pick a focal length - can be anything you like but you cannot change mid challenge. If you pick 45mm on your 18-55 then you must stay at 45mm. 2 - Pick a subject - anything you want 3 - Pick a spot to stand - you cannot move away from that place. You can squat or lean or bend but you cannot move to a different spot 4 - Now shoot 25 different compositions of your subject from that spot. Yes that's right, 25. Sorry film people... note - if your subject is a person, just having them change pose is not a new composition Share a few of the best unusual compositions. Note where in the order of the 25 your favorites were taken. Ex. this was photo #14. You can do this once for the week or several times or every day - the choice is yours. If you participate more than once you can change steps 1-3 for each attempt. As always new photos only please. I'm posting this a day early because I'll be offline most of tomorrow so if you want to start early you can ignore the start date above and have at it.
