It seems like there is never enough time. Time defines your life from your age, to your workday, to when you go to bed. We have schedules to keep and try manage our time because it is precious resource. Wasting time is generally something we avoid, at least until vacation time comes around.
Your challenge this week is to take a still life that represents time.
Watches and clocks are obvious choices for this challenge, but get creative with the technical aspects of the shot to make it more compelling. You can use framing and depth of field to focus attention the subject.
Time is also a critical part of photography – shutter speed can be used to convey a sense of time passing or can freeze time. You can take a shot with time as part of the technique, just make sure it is a still life. This is not a long exposure challenge – a long exposures of cars driving at night is not still life photography.
Also, try to have fun. Time is more than clocks, you can tell a story about time as the photo below does.
And of course, the timing of the when you press the shutter button can be a critical aspect to your shot. The hourglasses below convey a sense of time because we see they are running, and the levels are all similar.
So, take some time and think of a creative still life shot about time. Good luck!
As always, please post/share a photo you take THIS WEEK. We love your old photos, but not for the challenge. The point of the PhotoChallenges is for you to set out to create a new photo, to share with us all this week. Share them with us all at our Google+ Community, Facebook Group, and/or our Flickr Group.
For the active outdoor enthusiast that wants to keep their camera/binoculars at the ready and always secure. Go out and discover!
