In a book I have by Tom Ang, "Digital Photography", he suggests something similar of spending a day or so of just taking similar pictures or pictures with similar settings. Funny you should mention that. That is just what I did yesterday, in 23 degree weather. As mentioned about three weeks ago, I am creating my website www.sidewalkmystic.com. (Not active). I spent 5 hours yesterday photographing sidewalks. What a rich subject matter. I used a pair of my shoes as well as props in about 1/3 of them. Learnings for this novice:1. Photoshooting is fun; getting the 'bug.'2. Digital is the way to go. Shot 48 prints. I will probably get 3-4 good ones. Digital spares you that 'click and wait.'3. When a sign in a public park says 'No entrance,' no one is there at 7.30 am to make you comply. (There was a fantastic foot bridge/sidewalk over a parkway that I wanted to capture).4. I stopped at the camera shop yesterday. Remember - a novice. Looked at digitals. Had no idea they were all point and clicks with 12-18 pre-sets. I will ask you in June about your ideas - I will be buying one.5. Laying down on a sidewalk in Wisconsin when it is 23 degrees is a sacrifice if you want a different look. Wow, and it was April 5th.6. Shots that I thought would be fantastic often turned 'blah' when viewed through the lens. 7. Fantastic, superb shots lie begging to be shot in the most mundane places.8. Composition is 95% of the game.IvanGrowth
