Last week I discovered Ramblings and Photos by Ashley Sisk, which is a pretty amazing photography blog.
Every Sunday Ashley hosts a photo Scavenger Hunt. She gives you 5 themes, and then you have to go out and caputre them. I decided to try it out when I spend a full day on campus. I hope that by participating in this every week I can improve my photography skills!
I failed miserably at this. It interests me, but I don't have photog-skillz, and so I don't have anything for this, I'll have to keep trying.
This shot is a panoramic view of my city's downtown core from across the river at the university.
This one is a shot of the top of one of the solar powered trash compactors on campus. I love the reflection of the biology building in the solar cells!!
This was probably my favorite, I can't pick just one shot of this one
Looking at this one of the bench, a different angle would have reinforced the repetition idea, but I still like it.
Love the bike tires, but kinda wish they were more perfectly aligned. I wasn't willing to start messing with other people's bikes though!
I think this one has to be my favorite. I just love the way the trees framed the building drawing attention to the smoke stacks!
This was effing hard. Especially on campus. I went to the education building, which also has the music department and wasn't very successful due to all the glaring fluorescent lights reflecting off of EVERYTHING!! Grrr.
Found this drum, not very happy with it still.
So my shots aren't great, but I feel that I learned a lot in the process which is really why I"m doing this. I think that most of these, especially "music" could be taken at closer distances and really focus in on parts to create a picture that has more interest.
I hope that you guys have found this as insightful as I have! And maybe you'll join in next week over at Ramblings and Photos!
