My new Wednesday Photo Project is to work my way through the book “Use This If You Want to Take Great Photographs. A photo journal” by Henry Carroll. I’m not sure how much I’ll do on each night, but I made my first foray into the book with Shannon’s assistance last Wednesday.
The way the book works is that is mostly a collection of pages to paste pictures into with photo directives like:
Take an ugly picture of something beautiful.
Create drama around the edge of your frame.
Use aperture to capture melancholy.
Make light the subject of your photography.
And so on and so forth.
Here are four images I started with:
Photograph a park bench.
Show us that photography is a form of magic.
Photography your earliest memory.
Throw something at your subject and capture their reaction with a fast shutter speed.
Since I’m still trying to figure out how I’m going to attack this project, I might redo a couple of these photos because I think I’m going to add on a rule that nobody can be in more
