Have you ever looked at an every-day object and suddenly seen it—the pencil, the cup, the twist of paper—differently? The members of Uncommon Perspective, AIM’s still photography club, will again be seeing the world with fresh eyes at our May 14, 2012, meeting.
For this meeting, we are each taking a common household object and photographing it in an exercise that will challenge every level of photographer. You don’t need fancy equipment—only a change in perspective, 45 minutes, some kind of camera, and a brush.
- Take a brush—any kind of brush, arrange it, and photograph it for 15 minutes from every perspective you can imagine.
- Take a 15-minute break and look at the photographs you have taken.
- Return to the brush and take photographs for another 15 minutes--only this time don’t repeat a photo you took in the first set.
- View your first set and your second set and select your two favorite pictures from each session.
- Join other Uncommon Perspective members at our next meeting at AIM at 7:00 PM on May 14, 2012, to share your results and see what colleagues have done with their brushes. Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org
The goal of Uncommon Perspective is to provide useful feedback to members on the content and style of their images so that we can all grow as photographers. We are open to all AIM members. Non-AIM members are welcome to check us out. Although our focus is on still photography, cinematographers can gain useful practice with lighting, composition, tone, and so forth, so please join us.
