August Assignment: 1 subject, 3 looks

I thought this month we would try something a little different. In my effort to rush though a shoot w/ DS, I find myself doing the same old thing ALL the time. To force myself (and anyone else who wants to play) to look at things in a different manner, I thought we would try this for the August assignment ...

1 subject, 3 looks

The idea is to take a photo of the same subject at three completely different angles.

You can change the DOF(aperture), your lens, your focal length, or any other settings you like but the subject has to be the same and the angle must be different in all three photos.

What do you say? Want to give it a try?

Hope you have fun and that it results in a new perspective for us all!

Best,
GiGi

I do this all the time, even did it when we used to use film, yeah I wasted a lot, gotta love the digital age letting me shoot away.

I took a bunch yesterday before seeing this I'd love to share.

These are all so much fun! Love the water slide, Steph, and the soccer shots! Katie, your B&Ws are so great!

Here's a few from me... attempting something for the "school days" COTW. I would rather do something with Nora, but so busy I don't know when to take her down to the school grounds for some shots. I'll try! Anyway, here's my three shots with her school supplies:

I love how well you guys have captured 'summer' in these photos! Summer is a tough time for me at work, so personally, I'll be glad for fall to get here. Wink

Here are a few shots of Logan while he is working away at some drawings:
