A while ago I was given the brief from my wife to create a gift for someone. She wanted me to create a montage of numbers that I’ve photographed so that when they were put together they read the date of this particular person’s wedding.
So I began my search for numbers, I found plenty on houses and street signs but it wasn’t as easy as I thought it would be.
This project is all about creating a database of numbers that you might want to use in the future. Try focus less on the actual number you are photographing and more on how different it looks from everything else you have.
Do a handful of these a week and after a while you’ll have a wonderful library of stock images.
This weekly photo challenge is designed to complement our photography basics section the London Mums website. Each week we will set a different theme and your homework is to go out and photograph a collection of images related to that theme.
You can start this challenge whenever you like and do the different themes in any order you see fit. Think of these challenges as a photography workout. Don’t just do them once and not revisit them. If you do start these challenges as you begin our online basics classes then in a few months why not revisit older challenges to see how much better a photographer you have become.
Also try and think outside the box as much as possible. Photography is as much about creative interpretation as it is about technical prowess.
