In photography class, we are starting to talk about storytelling: using photographs to tell, wait for it, a story! (Think: the photo essays in Life magazine back in the day.) Last week, the teacher gave us several prompts, and we had to take pictures inspired by these prompts. Kind of like the Everyday Eyecandy challenges I’ve mentioned. So, for weekend fun, I wanted to share my photos with you.
I Can See for Miles and Miles
What I love about this picture is you can see the shadow of the railing on the girl’s jeans. I would love to try this prompt on the beach on the Jersey Shore.
Betcha Can’t Eat Just One!
This prompt was my favorite. It gave me an excuse to buy vanilla cupcake M&Ms at Target. You need these in your life, my friends.
The exterior of Liberty Humane Society, our local animal shelter. I lost my sweet girl, Pashmina, to a brain tumor in August. Nightmare. I am thinking of adopting again this spring, to honor her life. I also want her companion, Mesa, to have a new buddy. Change is a good thing!
For next week, we have to create a 7-photo essay called The Essence of My Neighborhood. I already have a few ideas! This should be interesting… (Don’t worry. I’ll post my pics!)
Tell me. What photos would you take inspired by the above prompts? Don’t be shy. Share in the comments!
This year, I’m doing the Eyecandy Project 52 photography challenge. Every week, we have to take a picture inspired by a prompt, such as From Above. Some prompts are relevant to the time of year, some are more evergreen. I’m thinking I’ll post my more successful efforts here about once a quarter. Wish me luck!
