Since the weddings and engagement surprise this year, I have been reading about ways to help improve my photography skills. one exercise I read about was a 50-50-50 project. the idea is you shoot at 50mm, walk around taking photos every 50 feet (15-20 steps), and take 50 photos. the idea is to force yourself to find new perspectives and practice good framing. I did not crop these photos, and did a minimal amount of post-processing. I tried to stick to the plan, but there are a few shots that are closer than 50 ft. As soon as I heard of this project, I knew the perfect place for it: the abandoned houses.
quite possibly the scariest thing – open your mailbox, and find a wasp nest
I kind of like this one mostly because it looks like one of those metaphoric photos of nature and development.
looks like the remains of a small deer
burned tire, down to its metal skeleton
some color in the fields
I liked this project a lot, I think I’ll try it again in a more urban environment to change up the challenge. an alternative to the 50-50-50 is the 100-100-100, shooting at 100mm and taking 100 pictures, one every 100 feet.
