spar(s)e- alone and lonely. by- adventureclubviral

sandy beach in oceanside

some people choose to be alone- alone with their thoughts or their books, alone for the quiet, alone from distraction.
when you look around- you see people everywhere that appear to have chosen to be alone. and sometimes you forget that alone is a choice. because when you look around- everyone who is alone- looks so lonely…


position assignment

position. composition. placement.

take any basic photography class and inevitably your instructor will mention the “rule of thirds.” the rule of thirds is a compositional technique that can help to create a sense of balance and make photos more interesting. whether or not you choose to follow the rule of thirds is up to you but there is no denying that where you choose to position or place the subject of your image has a dramatic effect on the impact, interpretation and overall feeling of your work.

the assignment:

explore position, composition and placement.


take one photo and crop it different ways and notice the change in mood and movement.

choose a subject and play with positioning your subject in the center of one shot, in the upper right corner of the next, at the very top, at the very bottom…etc.

compose a series of various postions.

your collection should reflect an attempt answer to the question
how does position effect my work?

looks like it tastes. by- thestephALA

light. fluffy. thick. creamy. liquid meringue. my neighbor’s home-made egg nog dazzled my senses. it smelled amazing and looked and felt like a beautiful cloud. this eggnog tasted like nothing i have ever experienced. the perfect combination of sweet, spice and cumulonimbus.
