With the new year we thought we would add “mini” blog posts and share some of our current activities, insights, and epiphanies.
I am currently reading a book by Nancy Rotenberg focused on creativity. In an essay she presents a challenge to help you see – take 30 frames of your subject. I decided to add the qualifier “different’ when I gave it a try. It’s not easy. I love Gerber Daisies – but until this activity I had never really noticed the interesting yellow buds that rim the center, or how just focusing on the petals looks like feathers on a bird, or what interesting abstracts I can create by defocusing the yellow buds against the red petals. I found this challenge to be an eye-opener and something I will start to incorporate regularly into my photography.
