Brenda’s photo study this week resonated strongly with me. She takes the lessons from Cemal Ekin’s article and follows his simple exercise in improving seeing as a photographer.
- The setting is one location only
- The time taken 15 minutes
- The format is square – cropped or set at 1:1
- The maximum is 30 photos
It took me a while to unregister the items and seek patterns – click for closer look
“try to focus on things that normally escape your attention… Look for texture, lines, shapes, forms rather than “things” to photograph” Cemal Ekin
Rather like drawing with the right side of the brain, I started to focus more on light and shade – offsetting also helped
Link to Brenda’s post if you want to experiment with seeing in squares.
Postscript: Since Becky is making June squares a rooftop theme, here are three I cropped though I shall venture forth with camera set on 1:1 before the end of the month!
