For my Photoblitz, I was given this list:

Doors can have a lot of character, be it in the hinges, knob, or style. Your feet, show what kind of day you’re having. Make the subject is isolated against a very bright background. Take a photo that includes objects near and far (deep depth of field). Take a photograph of a spinning object, frozen motion or blurred. Square is hip! Lose the rectangle. A photo with square (1:1) aspect ratio. Show us some food.

Since it was raining outside when I did this, I didn’t go far, but I had a lot of fun with it.

Start time: 08:54.

First up: doors

I love these wooden doors that we have in the Veteran’s center, and the scratch on it shows its character. It also is welcoming because it opens to a comfy room.

Second: my feet

Wet pavement, no rain boots. I made the decision to not wear them this morning, but was it the right one?

Third: isolated subject

The brightest background I could find was a ceiling light. I decided to use something that could be identified if it was out of focus, so I chose a paper crane.

Fourth: Near and far

We have signs in the VRC, so I figured it would be cool to make the two relate to each other. The distance isn’t too far, but if it were any farther, you wouldn’t be able to tell what the other sign says.

Fifth: spinning object

One thing I knew could spin easily was a coin. However, it was hard to get a picture of it since I had to spin it and then grab my phone and snap a photo. So, the photo isn’t that great, but I think the blurred coin itself is really cool.

Sixth: square

A snapshot of my morning: Drinking my tea and trying to figure out what the heck is going on with the Iowa caucus.

Last but not least: food

My lunch that I prepped this week is a cobb salad. I’m so excited to eat this because I didn’t have breakfast.

End time: 09:09

This exercise was really fun. It challenged me to see things from a different perspective and to take pictures of things I normally never would. I probably looked really weird running around taking pictures of these random things. I do think, however, this exercise allowed me to learn how to take better pictures.

10/10 would do it again.
