This last week we had the assignment to take a new picture every day of the week. The goal of this assignment was to look at the same things that normally are seen and then make a photograph. But the real goal is to make a photograph that is different and engaging. So here are the 7 photographs that I have made this last week.
Fridge; June 2, 2010; 11:40 pm; My Apartment; f 1.4, 1/30; Canon Rebel XS; 50 mm
The first day I decided to look around my apartment, not to mention it was like 20 minutes until the next day. So I spent some time looking for an interesting photograph. I happen to go into the fridge and started making photographs. Well I ended up taping the light down and I got some interesting things. I also decided to shot in black and white and I from then on I decided to make the rest of the pictures this week black and white. This image is SOOC.
Light; June 3, 2010; 8:30 pm; My Apartment; f 1.4, 1/4000; Canon Rebel XS; 50 mm
After the first day I decided to continue with the theme of apartment and what is close by my house. I looked around and I thought that I would try and photograph the light. So I pumped up the shutter speed and turned down the f-stop to get something fun. This image is SOOC.
Kitchen Counter; June 4, 2010; 6:18 pm; My Apartment; f 1.4, 1/125; Canon Rebel XS; 50 mm
After dinner I was cleaning up the kitchen and I thought that this would make an interesting photograph. How many times do we look at these things, place them around our house but never really take the time to look and see what it makes. This image is SOOC.
Trash; June 5, 2010; 9:10 am; My Apartment; f 1.8, 1/100; Canon Rebel XS; 85 mm
One of my regular duties as a father is to take out the trash. It has been something that I have done from the first day that I got married. Anyway as I took out the garbage I saw an opportunity for photograph. I took the picture and wanted to make sure that I had a shallow depth of field. I think it made an interesting photograph. This image is SOOC.
Fence; June 6th, 2010; 2:00 pm; My Apartment; f 1.8, 1/100; Canon Rebel XS; 85 mm
Continuing the theme, outside my apartment there is a really old fence where I park my motorcycle. As I was getting on to leave I thought that the fence and the lining would make something intriguing. I really like the strong lines that are going up and down as well as sideways. This image is SOOC.
Nook; June 6, 2010; 4:40 pm; My Apartment; f 1.8, 1/100; Canon Rebel XS; 85 mm
Right outside our door there is this crazy tree. I actually don’t even know what kind it is, but that isn’t saying much. I haven’t really ever studied that kind of stuff. Anyway on one side was a knot and I wanted to take a picture of it. I took several but I think that this one, with a shallow depth of field, was the best. This image is SOOC.
Bikes; June 7, 2010; 7:03 pm; My Apartment; f 1.8, 1/40; Canon Rebel XS; 85 mm
For the last day I was walking around my apartment complex and there were a ton of bikes. When I say a ton, really I think we have more bikes than we have tenants. Obviously that inspired me to make a photograph and this is the outcome. This image is SOOC.
