The 50 Picture Project

Men are in my kitchen replacing the boiler, I have no water until tomorrow and my car is blocked in by their vans. It’s blowing a hooley outside and I had to chase the garden furniture and plants around the garden – currently, we are in the throes of Storm Hector or is it Howard, I forget, whoever it is I’m not going out there until it stops! I am keeping out of the way and hiding in my shed or in my study.  Haha, study indeed! How middle-class does that sound!!?? I’ll be voting for Jacob Rees- Mogg next.  (NOT!!!)  Anyway, it’s really a converted bedroom which houses my computer and camera stuff, books and useless knick-knacks.

I started a new photography project today, as part of the 50 pictures Project group over on the Ipernity photo site.  The only parameters are to use one object in 50 different shots, or you can use 50 different objects but have the same title- i.e 50 different chairs,. No time limit to do the project so it’s all very loose, which I like. I have decided to do 50 mirror shots, though I haven’t quite decided yet whether to do 50 of the same mirror or change it up a bit and use/find different ones.  I like having a project to work on.  It hones creativity I think or at least focusses the mind to think creatively.  Having a time limit would focus it more of course, but I’m not one for limits. I chose a mirror because it makes you think about composition, and it helps to tell a story so the viewer engages with the photo, you can tell me if that works.

So here are my first  2 shots for the project

(1) Shed shelf

 

2 Other shed shelf

 

they’re embiggenable of course.

  1. Storm Hector. Good name for a storm, but we are also getting those high winds here.
    Nice idea to use mirrors, and is that Frego blurred in the foreground, or the little Japanese character? 🙂
    Best wishes, Pete.

  2. Hi Fraggle. That sounds serious. Batten down the hatches! I’ve never heard the phrase “blowing a hooley” — Love it. That’s my new word (term) of the day.
    The new project sounds fun. I like what you did with the mirror — great item choice. Those are really cool compositions. They would make cute wall art for an office or a kid’s room. Well done! Hugs

  3. How did I miss this one? Really sorry 😭😭 I’m glad I was able to still catch up to it though 😀 This really is a very interesting project indeed. And quite difficult too might I add. Looking forward to seeing the rest of the pictures, but these first two were awesome. Okay now switching back to todays post 😀😀
