Day 4 of photo challenge: “Create a peaceful image in a cafe or restaurant”. Of course, it had to be Starbucks. Midday break to read ‘Yerma’ before I watch it today at NT Live.
Day 3, challenge: “Shoot a picture that says something about feeling happy”.
Of course, I had to take this photo in my favourite bookstore, Indigo.
Day 1 Challenge: Photograph an image based on the title “Finding Life”
Just because I love to overbook myself (and because my darling Anya needs some inspiration for her blog), we are doing a photo challenge for the rest of September.
I am posting this to make us both accountable. Plus, if anyone wants to join or get inspired by the topics – please be our guest! I came up with the random rules and topics to make it easy and fun. The goal is to inspire us both to take more creative photos.
Today my friend Anya and I went to one of Apple’s Photo Walks. It is an hour and a half free session of walking around the neighbourhood (in our case – Old and New City Halls) with an Apple rep, talking about basic iPhone camera features, exposure, light, contrast, etc. It is great for newbies and those who don’t use their iPhone’s camera much but want to learn.
I can’t say that I personally learned something new from it, but I loved walking around with a group of people and intentionally trying to be creative and look at ordinary things at different angles. It would have been even better if it weren’t so blazingly hot!
Here are some of the photos from that walk. All taken by iPhone 6S, standard Camera app, no editing apps.
