A Photo a Week Challenge: Directional

directional_nmp

Sorry about the late posting for this week’s challenge. I’ve been celebrating Thanksgiving with my family. If you celebrated today, I hope you enjoyed the holiday.

This week’s challenge is about directions. There are many ways to capture directions in photos. I’ve chosen one of the stone and metal compasses that you find along South Temple outside the Joseph Smith Memorial Building in downtown Salt Lake City. Street signs, traffic signs, weather vanes, and compasses help provide direction. We can also receive direction from a teacher or spiritual leader. We may seek guidance from nature or scripture or our own inner instinct.

IN A NEW POST CREATED FOR THIS CHALLENGE, SHARE A PHOTO OR TWO (OR MORE) THAT SHOWS OR REPRESENTS DIRECTION.

Everyone is welcome to participate, even if your blog isn’t about photography.

Here’s how it works:

  1. Each week, I’ll come up with a theme and post a photo that I think fits. You take photographs based on your interpretation of the theme, and post them on your blog (a new post!) anytime before the following Thursday, when the next photo theme will be announced.
  2. To make it easy for others to check out your photos, title your blog post “A Photo a Week Challenge: (theme of the week)” and be sure to use the “postaday″ tag.
  3. Come back here and post a link to your image in the comments for this challenge.

A Photo a Week Challenge: Crossed Lines

crossed_lines_nmp

The art of photography is the study of lines and curves. We are always looking at how lines and curves affect our image. At how converging lines interact with our main subject or subjects. We can become obsessed with the rule of thirds and where those lines line up (hehehe). So for this week, I want you to find lines that cross. My photo was taken on the Big Island of Hawaii at a black sand beach were we stopped to watch sea turtles and the surf. Walking down to the sandy part of the beach, I found this beautiful spot where the tall, almost-vertical palm tree trunks crossed the horizon and a bridge.

IN A NEW POST CREATED FOR THIS CHALLENGE, SHARE A PHOTO OR TWO (OR THREE OR…) OF CROSSING OR CROSSED LINES.

Everyone is welcome to participate, even if your blog isn’t about photography. Here’s how it works:

  1. Each week, I’ll come up with a theme and post a photo that I think fits. You take photographs based on your interpretation of the theme, and post them on your blog (a new post!) anytime before the following Thursday, when the next photo theme will be announced.

A Photo a Week Challenge: Picture in Picture

pic_n_pic_nmp

Today, more people take pictures with their phones than with anything else, including cameras. I grabbed this shot at my niece’s wedding last month just as a friend was nabbing a photo of the bride and her maid of honor. Another cleaver method of photography that’s starting to get a lot of use is taking a picture of someone else taking a picture and seeing the image on that device, like this cell phone or the back of a digital camera. So, get cleaver, get creative, and have fun with this one.

IN A NEW POST CREATED FOR THIS CHALLENGE, SHARE A PHOTO OR TWO (OR THREE OR…) OF SOMEONE ELSE TAKING A PICTURE, ESPECIALLY IF WE CAN SEE WHAT THEY SEE.
