It changed how I looked at things, how I photographed. Having a challenge was fun and seeing what others did also by searching the class hashtag (#BPCphonephotograpgyclass) on Instagram.
In this month-long workshop, I had fun with my phone as I documented my summer adventures. Maybe you could do some of your own. See some of my challenges below.
I'll share with you my favorite 4 picture challenges.
Day 1: Shoot your feet. Concept of 'from where I stand'. Thinking about where you're standing isn't always on the top of my priority list. Look down! It's interesting all the things you can find. I captured the art room floor here at mambi. Colorful, isn't it? Love the creativity of where I work.
Day 2: Monogram Collage. My assignment was to capture my initials, and myself, then make a collage. It really made me notice letters in my daily routine. It's interesting what you find and how I now notice letters more than ever.
Day 11: Perspective. Capturing a moment, a perspective. Looking at something from another point of view. To this, I decided to show my Instagram family MY point of view. Doing the social media for me & my BIG ideas involves a lot of phone time. This is A LOT of what I look at daily and wanted to share it.
Day 13: Water. This assignment was water. I live only a couple miles from the ocean so on my way home from work I decided to go and capture 'water'. It was nice taking some time and capturing the beauty out in the world when normally I would have just headed home. Sometimes you need a challenge to get you out and about.
You can see more of my photos below and a page from my personal scrapbook that shows my BPC Photography Project. It was so fun and really changed the way I take photos. I find myself taking more than just photos of friends and events. Taking pictures of your surroundings, the details ... it adds so much.
