Week 20: Excavation!
We’re moving from exploration to excavation this week. As we explore our world with our lenses, we often find the things we long to discover. The word excavation means the act of digging. Begin to excavate the things you love by looking at what you love to photograph. As you notice what you love to shoot the most, share your discoveries. It’s exciting stuff to see your passions emerge from and come through in your work!
I really love trying to find a new perspective to what I’m capturing. We have a waterwall here in Houston and people love to use it for photographs. I was standing back under this arch and happened to see an “eye”… a new perspective and a way to take a different image.
There is something soothing to me about seeing stacks. Call me crazy but I feel like all is right with the world when things are stacked up. Of course, these stacks can’t just be of random messes. They must be objects of similar shape, size or color. They must display some kind of…say it with me…rhythm.
These oranges were on display at a department store… kind of fun!
Picture Inspiration is a companion space to the Picture Series classes and consists of weekly photocentric prompts, challenges and projects. It’s a virtual coffee shop – a place to gather, chat, share photos, glean insignts, ask questions, and get inspired. Through connection and creativity, we are delving deeper into what it means to use photography to reveal the magic in our everyday lives.
