This week for the Numbers theme your challenge is to shoot a sequence of numbers. Try to find at least three numbers in a sequence.  A sequence is numbers that follow each other in order, not just a group of numbers together.

The sequence can be any ordered list of numbers. The example above shows a sequence of odd numbers in reverse. The repetition of the seat and number pattern pulls you into the shoot and gives you the sense that the seats gone on forever.

The example below shows part of grid of sequential numbers.

For this challenge, if you need to create a sequence, go ahead. The example below is actually several shots combined into a sequence (of sorts). The sequence isn’t complete, but there are two sequences of three numbers. Each shot uses the same technique and framing for continuity.

As you shoot, consider framing and other elements besides the numbers. You may be able to find a sequence that isn’t necessarily the main subject of the shot. The sequence may be an supporting element in the shot.

And old camera gear always makes a great shot, especially when it fits the challenge.

  • Post one original photograph (Your Image) shot each week per theme posted on this blog to Google+Facebook, or Flickr (or all three). Tag the photo #photochallenge.org or #photochallenge2015.
  • The shot should be a new shot you took for the current weekly theme, not something from your back catalog or someone else’s image.
  • The posted image should be a photograph, not a video.
  • Don’t leave home without your camera. Participating in the 2015 Photo Challenge is fun and easy.


About Steve Troletti

I'm a Location Scout, Editorial, Nature, Wildlife and Environmental Photographer based in Malibu, California. I specialize in Nature and Urban Nature photography including Infrared Landscapes. The Bulk of my work takes place in the Los Angeles, California area, Greater Montreal Region, Canada, Switzerland, France and Varese in Northern Italy. Ethical wildlife photography is the main priority and focus of my work. A minimum disturbance of the animals, their habitat and the environment is my top priority. This applies as much to total wilderness areas as it does to urban nature environments. Ongoing education of environmental issues and building awareness for the protection of wildlife and wilderness areas around the world is what drives me to document the beauty that surrounds us.
