Over the past week I have been thinking about my photos for the month of November. Where do I want to take them? What photography skills do I want to practice? I thought of how many times I see Lego men photographed. It’s become almost an art. So I went to Target and looked for THE perfect lego man to photograph during November. He would go with me everywhere, and I would chronicle my life by taking photos of where and what he is doing. Great idea, eh?
Well, all I could find at Target were Lego men that were monsters, star wars characters, vampires…you get the idea. I didn’t want THEM! So, I went home empty-handed. Then I had the idea to photograph one of Annika’s vast collection of beanie babies that she collected back in the day. I went into the garage to find the box they were in. After 20 minutes of searching, I just couldn’t find them. I DID find Annika’s doll house that we had made for her MANY years ago. And guess who I found sitting on the balcony? Scottie. Well, I don’t know if his real name is Scottie, that’s the name I am giving him! He is barely 2″ tall and he will be perfect to photograph this month. I hope to explore photographic skills such as: aperture settings (depth of field), focus points, filling the frame with my subject, and taking photos from unusual perspectives.
I can’t wait and I hope you enjoy this little experiment. So, I will post his photo every day and you all must guess where he is/what he is doing. I hope we can get quite a good conversation going each day and that you will drop by often to add your thoughts.
So, where do you think he is today?Advertisements
