Through The Lens Thursday is a one-year photography project, where every week, my project partner, Greta of GFunkified and I, will post a picture (or pictures) we have taken based on a prompt. Our hope is that together, we can teach and learn from each other, stay accountable to our goal of improving our skills, and hopefully, be taking some gorgeous photographs.
This week’s prompt is ‘Black’.
My camera took a selfie!
I know, I’m stretching the prompts slightly. 37 weeks of taking pictures based on prompts, especially when you don’t go out much, has proved to be… challenging. I have to dig deep for creative inspiration.
Which means the next couple of weeks is going to be interesting. Because, ‘tall’ and ‘away’ don’t exactly mean anything in photographic terms, right? Give me some ideas. Tall person? Tall building? Tall tree? Fling a balloon in the air and ‘away’ it goes? A picture of my kids walking out the door? Help. Oh, then there’s ‘deception’. WHAT WAS I THINKING WHEN COMING UP WITH PROMPTS? (or should I conveniently blame Greta?)
Speaking of photography, I’m thinking of reviving the 30 Days of Self-Portraits project I did on my Facebook page last year, as my postpartum project. You know, on top of this one, and looking after four children, and blogging, and taking showers, and whatnot. WHY NOT? Whaddya think?
Next week’s prompt: Tall
