Week 36: Passing of Time | 2018 Project 52

It’s been a whirlwind of a week between work and life. No complaints, but there were so many things on my to-do list that other things had to wait… like my photo for this week. I had a couple of ideas and was really wanting to play with some intentional camera movement or something abstract, but during a cat-nap last night, I had an idea that I wanted to try first.

I liked that idea. A lot.

Camera and Lens: Canon EOS 5D Mark III with Canon EF35mm f/1.4L USM

We’ve been photographing seasons this year, but to me, they really help define the passing of time. Here in Kentucky, we experience all four seasons (which a lot of folks don’t all around the world), but as we ease from the cold of winter into the green of spring, the heat of summer and then the yellow and orange of fall… we know that time is passing by. We can see it in the environment around us, feel it too. Colors change constantly, skies lighten and darken, and the idea of leaves spoke to me.

Nothing fancy. But still a good representation of the passing of time.

Week 37: Triangle
due 09.12.18

How about another shape to keep us on our toes and on the hunt?

For Week 37 we’re looking for triangles. I really love this shape because of how common it is in photography composition; usually not as a tangible triangle, but an invisible connection of three points, or natural shape, that occurs in an image. It helps to draw the eye in and sometimes create balance, making a photograph more interesting, holding the viewer’s eye longer than anticipated.

So if you’re into triangle composition, implied triangles or finding the shape in subjects or backgrounds, show us your favorite photo of the week. Be as creative or as literal as you please.
