If this doesn’t make you happy, I don’t know what will.

Monochrome

dailyshoot: 2010/02/23: Monochrome photos don’t have to be the result of processing or desaturation. Find a monochrome composition and shoot it. #ds100

Squares and grids surround us in our built environment. Focus in on some squares today and make a photograph.

I must admit, I suggested that Caitlin use this shoebox thing for her grid shot, and she told me it wouldn’t look good.  Well ha!  Now we know that…

she was right.

I still like the shot, because it is a step for me.  My standard reaction ( IE my first attempt) was to stand directly in front of the object, hold the camera at eye level, and shoot.  This shot is an experiment with a different angle, one which in fact is difficult to get with your naked eye, simply because it is hard to cram your face in there.

“An old adage in photography says if you want to improve your photographs, move closer. Fill your frame today!”

As you might be able to tell, even from this single shot, I’m not too hot with a camera, or any editor program.  I took this with Caitlin’s new 15.1 megapixel 12.1 jiggawatt fully armed and operational camera.  The camera in the image is what I’ll be using for the rest of my pictures (probably).  I don’t like carrying a camera.  I carry plenty of things, but the most breakable (by far) is my cell phone.  It gets dinged up and broken pretty frequently (I even once accidentally ran over my phone with my car).  For this reason (fear of damage) I don’t carry a camera, and I’m not in the habit of taking pictures.  So this project is both a nice stretch for my abilities and kinda annoying.
