On the last Saturday of my vacation I headed up to the downtown Boone area to stroll around and complete Page 33 of THE PHOTO JOURNAL PROJECT:
Cover your screen with black tape. Spend the day shooting and only remove the tape when you get home.
This was a little photo experiment that I enjoyed more than I anticipated. I would encourage anybody to try it.
I put an 18-135 zoom lens on my camera for this page. I decided I needed the extra challenge of also zooming blindly, in addition to composing blind for some reason.
Another thing that I didn’t expect to be so hard about the project (for me personally) was to have to so blindly trust auto-focus.
If you are getting a little bored in your photography, I definitely urge you to try this for an hour or so. It is more fun than it sounds. One other added bonus is not seeing the pictures takes us old-timers back to the days of film and not being able to get that instant gratification of what the picture looks like.
Here are the other pictures I took on this photo jaunt that I like (to one degree or another) but won’t physically be placed in the physical copy of A PHOTO JOURNAL:
I did not crop or straighten any of the pictures.
Next time we check in with THE PHOTO JOURNAL PROJECT we will most likely check in on Page 93.
