Today's project: take a common object and compose an abstract composition with it.
I've narrowed it down to two.

I read about this technique months ago and thought it would be fun to try. Slow down the shutter speed and move the camera on purpose. This is actually Liam's quilt, which is made entirely of bright coloured squares:

I like all of them! :thumb:

The quilt shot is the winner imo.

I love the middle one (it actually first looked like a raised bump of red something until I realized what it was) but is it really an abstraction? The camera didn't move so it seems "realist", just an extreme close up.

I love the quilt. I thought it was a thumbprint. You'd never know it was squares of anything.

The quilt shot is the winner imo.
The quilt shot is my favorite, too, among the three.

Yet, it looks too much like an oil painting, or something that can be quite idiomatic of or naturally achieved via oil painting. In that sense, it does not showcase photography, and I'd avoid it for that reason. If the point is photography, I'd gravitate towards things that can uniquely achieved via photography.

Good luck! :)

I see what you're saying, Ax, and that's one of the reasons I doubted it. The good thing about dailyshoot is that it's not a competition or anything like that. It's just meant to be an inspiration to get your camera out every day and take photos you wouldn't necessarily taken otherwise. It's really about just practicing to get better at it. That's one of the reasons I'm attracted to the idea. :) So, that's the one I ended up posting, but it's a case of process being more important than product.

Today's project is the economy. Hmmm...

Today's theme:
The economy is in the news all the time. Make a photo that illustrates the economy or its impact on you in some way.

I should have gone back out and recomposed this image. It was cold (-18 with the windchill. Brr!) so I did not.

You're a clever girl, Sue! I went outside AGAIN today!

Today's dailyshoot:
Wherever there's an edge, there's energy. Make a photo where two things meet: land-water, land-sky, etc.

I'm a sucker for a landscape shot. Love those colors! Barn-red is the best.

Sue, that first one is so cool. Is that looking down an orange juice bottle?

Wow, I love that, dol. The lines, the colours, the composition, everything. You live in such an interesting place. It's not all green and mossy and grey everywhere!


opti, it's a jar of honey. 'something sweet' was the assignment.

I like both of them, Sue! I love the twisty tree/vine in the top one, and I like how the "edge" in the second one is so clear even though it's not the perfectly "straight" interpretation that I went with. :)

Edit: *snicker The cat is funny. And he looks very well fed/well loved. :D

Hear, hear. I think it would be really cool if it were bookmarked and there were multiple people participating.
