For practicing photography today, I decided to do the "10 minute" assignment. The idea is great and very easy - I will probably do this one several times. Follow these steps:
* Go out of your front door with the camera.
* Head in any direction and walk for 10 minutes - not 9, not 11, but exactly 10.
* When you reach the 10 minute mark, take an artfully composed photo of what you see.
The idea behind the assignment is this - great shots are everywhere and anywhere, but we often don't see them. This is especially true close to home. As a photographer, you have to learn to truly look at things and see them as potential photos.
Here's my shot (SOOC):
I happened to stop near a CUTE (!!!!) pup, but he was behind a chain-link fence.... and I also happened to stop right where the sidewalk changed from concrete to brick!! Love it!!
