I recently posted Five Minutes @ Hellenic Republic which was a nice little challenge from one of my photography groups. After chatting with Robyn from Captivate Me, we decided to make it a weekly event and I ask you to join in the challenge. Robyn came up with the clever hashtag “regularrandom” so we will use that to find each other in the Reader.
What’s this all about?
This challenge is designed to make you think about how you take photographs, how you use your scene, even how you edit.
Choose a scene or an object and keep fixed on that object, and shoot for just five minutes. You can move around the object or scene but try not to interfere with it. See what happens in that five minutes, what changes, how the light changes, what comes into the frame or leaves the frame, or what other parts of the object you can focus on or use to your advantage.
Everyone can spare five minutes, right?
How does it work?
Every Sunday (I’m in Australia, so you may see it on Saturday), I will post my Five Minutes of RegularRandom. Simply tag your post regularrandom and pingback to my post so we can find you in the comments.
Ok on to this week – this week, I spent my five minutes with Ms Robot. She is hot pink and fabulous. I placed her in one spot on a little table on my balcony and loaded up my macro lens and shot for five minutes. In this case, I didn’t move Ms Robot, I moved myself and shot her from as many angles as I could imagine.
I love the results, she is an intricate lady and was a lot of fun to shoot.
Please join in when you can, I’d love to see your five minutes of random.
