Week 37: Triangle | 2018 Project 52

Mike helped me this week with my photo. I’ve been so distracted with life lately and all of my ideas just seemed too… boring for me. But Mike had an idea and he was onto something.


Settings: f/4.0, 1/320 sec, 35mm, ISO 2000
Camera and Lens: Canon EOS 5D Mark III with Canon EF35mm f/1.4L USM

My husband is a motorhead. Well… maybe not the right description, but he does like cars and he likes to go fast.

I married Ricky Bobby.

He has quite the collection of random parts in the garage but started thinking about a stock supercharge he still has stored downstairs. He showed it to me and I said, “Sold – take it outside so I can get better light.” Then I watched him struggle to carry it (it’s not small and it’s quite heavy), but once I saw in natural light, the piece changed.

So much contract… shiny parts, shadows, grit and grime. So many lines… horizontal, vertical, round and… a triangle.

Not a true triangle, but I really like where Mike’s head was because not only does that area have a triangle top, but the rotors (are they rotors) inside also have a triangle shape to them.

Week 38: Abstract
due 09.19.18

Abstract photography is fast becoming one of my favorites. I love seeing how other capture the world around them, but that their process is done in a way that it changes reality. It really is non-objective photography and there are some amazing abstract photographers and works of art out there.

I’ve included some great abstract photography resources below for you, but don’t be afraid to get funky this week. Consider your composition, how you can add to or take away from your subject to completely alter its perception, get close, back up, intentionally move your camera… I can’t wait to see some cool stuff next week!
