This week I did a lot of photography. I had a few class assignments one of which was to photograph a path leading somewhere in the photograph. I thought on this assignment a bunch trying to think how I wanted to put it together. I decided I wanted to have a long straight path or road leading off into the distance and nothingness. The next challenge was finding a place that would be able to depict that feeling of nothingness. Fortunately I happened to find this section of large four lane road with no cars on it. Supposedly it was built by a developer but then the development was never completed so it just dead-ends. It was perfect for what I wanted so I set up my tripod and photographed it. I tried a few different variations but ended up liking this symmetrical panorama most. I like how all the lines lead into the center distance. I also got to play around with a few lenses I borrowed from my college one of which was a macro which was so much nicer to use than the extension tu
For the year 2012 I am doing a project where every week I take on self assignment. The idea is to practice and improve my photography skills by having an image in my mind and then trying to make a photograph of that, or in a more documentary style trying to tell a story about something. I predict that the true evolution of this project will make itself clear in time but the main idea is to constantly be exploring my photography.
