WPC-Texture

DSCN9442_edited

We consume photos through our eyes, but that doesn’t mean they can’t have a tactile element.

Photography is a primarily visual medium, but we can experience it with more than one sense. This week, focus on the tactile element of the objects you shoot, whether it’s one distinct quality — softness, smoothness, graininess, or any other texture you find interesting — or a combination of several within one frame..

Day Ten: “Architecture” — Go Monochrome Developing Your Eye

Day Ten: “Architecture” — Go Monochrome

When we talk about monochrome in photography, we’re referring to images developed or executed in black and white or in varying tones of only one color.

Today, think about how black, white, gray, and the shades in between can interact in your frame in dynamic ways. As you compose your architecture shot, look for sharp lines, distinct patterns, defined shapes, large surface areas, and very light and very dark colors.

If you’ve never shot in black in white, many devices and phone cameras let you switch to black and white shooting mode right in the camera. In the iPhone, for example, select the Mono, Tonal, or Noir settings to shoot in monochrome.

Learn more about black and white photography and get inspired by moody, dramatic images in Merilee’s great tutorial on shooting in black and white.

Weekly Photo Challenge-Transient

Transient

Drifters, nomads, and even the state of impermanence: this week, share your photos of transient.

Whether washed ashore, floating on air, at the mercy of ocean currents, or wandering the earth, passers-through captivate me. When I find driftwood on the beach, I think about its adventures. How many storms at sea did it endure? How many birds took rest on it as it bobbed in the open ocean? It was once rich brown and rough with bark, and now it’s sun-bleached and smooth as satin. Where did it come from? How far did it travel? What stories would it tell if it could talk, and how long before it will move on again?

Day Two: “Street” — Establishing Shot

Yesterday, we asked you to interpret home in your own way. Today, let’s focus on a street. It can be a quiet road blanketed in snow, an alley covered with murals, or a busy avenue where pedestrians weave between cars and motorbikes.

Wander your neighborhood — or someplace new — to capture your street snapshot.

Today’s Tip: While you’re free to take a picture from any angle, try to capture an establishing shot: a wide-angle photo that sets up a scene. You may need to back up a few steps, or climb some stairs to higher ground to fit the whole scene in one shot.

Visit the resource page for details on taking a wide shot. Remember to tag your post with #developingyoureye and check the Reader to see posts from fellow course participants
