1 Subject 3 Shots: Weekly Photography Challenge
Article from Digital Photography School
This week your photography challenge is to shoot the one subject in three different ways.
The idea came off the back of our recent post – Make Your Last Shot Your Best Shot – in which Anne McKinnell challenged us to not stop shooting after we get our first good shot but to look for new ways to photograph a scene or subject in the hope of making the followup shots even better than the first.
She showed some great examples (pictured) of how she went beyond the first ‘obvious’ shot in a scene to take some interesting shots from different angles and perspectives.
So here’s the challenge – choose a subject (it could be a portrait, landscape, cityscape, still life, glamour shot. anything) and aim to take at least 3 different shots of the one subject.
You might like to add variety to your shots by:
- shooting from a different angle or direction
- shooting with a different focal length
- changing up your settings
- trying a new technique (panning, slow sync shutter etc)
- changing the composition
Once you’ve taken your shots we’d LOVE to see them so please share 3 or so shots in your series and tell us a little about how you progressed them and changed things up!
Once you’ve taken and selected the ’1 Subject 3 Shots’ images that you’d like to share – upload them to your favourite photo sharing site or blog and either share a link to it or – embed them in the comments using our embed tool to do so.
If you tag your photos on Flickr, Instagram, Twitter or other sites with Tagging tag them as #DPS3SHOTS to help others find them. Linking back to this page might also help others know what you’re doing so that they can share in the fun.
Also – don’t forget to check out some of the great shots posted in last weeks challenge – Food challenge where there were some great shots submitted.
