Assignment 10/27/14 Photo Assignment

As we explore our world and surroundings, we capture images and memories of our everyday life.
You will be taking photographs of each of the following subjects:
Do I need to explain?  
Check out Finnish artist’s Iiu SusirajaAnti-Selfies

Create a self-portrait that incorporates your reflection.  Scan your environment and discover your reflection in windows, glass objects, liquids, or shiny utensils and objects.  We’ve all seen too many bathroom mirrors selfies; please spare us.

Each morning I appear
To lie at your feet,
All day I will follow
No matter how fast you run,
Yet I nearly perish
In the midday sun.
Find an interesting location to capture your shadow.  Think about location and again your surroundings.  
How do the shadows differ throughout the day?
A Walk in Nature
Go for a walk in nature and photograph from a meditative state of mind.  Shoot wide shots of nature as well as close-up details.  

Head in the Clouds
Record the sky whether it be the sunrise, sunset or cloud formations.

I took a workshop with Alessandra Cave and was motivated to pick up a camera.  This project was inspired from sections of her book, Shooting with Soul and by what I found from looking through the lens (even if it is an iphone) and hunting for the right shot.  It’s a scavenger hunt of sorts but it’s also a time for you to reflect on your perception of the world and how you communicate that though images.  
You will start this assignment today and send me your 5 bestphotos
The five photos will address each of the above subjects.  
Save your images- do not delete them, just in case I am unable to upload, didn’t receive, etc.  We will look at the photos on an upcoming content day and incorporate them in an assignment.
