Challenge/Assignment: Where your sitting

Post  rohape on Wed Jan 07, 2009 4:09 am

From where your sitting (your computer desk, your work desk, a frequented park bench), take a picture. Let's see what everyone (or just me and you Susan Smile ) come up with.
This is intended to flex your creativity. Don't just post a picture of your computer, let's see some of those creative juices flowing! Very Happy


RULES:
#1: Minimal PP. Try to be as creative as possible straight from the camera.
#2: Obviously nothing crude, nude or vulgar.
#3: Any camera.
#4: No deadline

Here's my cheap first attempt. Sitting at the little desk in my hotel room. Coffee sitting on the floor, reflecting light. Shot with the infamous nifty fifty. Flash on, center focus point. I guess this would be something like reverse focus or something like that. It's focusing on the light which is actually further away than the coffee cup. I have some other's reflecting my flash making a ring around the edge and flash in the center. Only cropped and resized. Smile

Ok what is "PP" in minimal PP?

I took two. Nothing to photograph that seems creative. Anyway, my fan (yes I know it's dusty) and then my slippers. I posed the slippers. They were on my feet though and I put them on the table next to the computer. I LIVE in my slippers lol!

Wow, thats a NICE shot of your fan! I like the angle. Looks like a shot from a catalog.
I would live in those slippers too. I have some L.L. Bean rabbit fur moccasin's that have been on my feet for about 3 years. I love the furlined!

Shocked First time I ever tried Guinness was shotgunning it....that was like 12 years ago, haven't touched it since. I actually don't drink at all any more. Smile
