@dailyshoot: 2010/02/24: There is often a conflict between traditional and contemporary. Make a photo that shows this tension. (@melhutch) #ds101
Oh man, when I read the assignment this morning, I thought– "is this the first one I bail on?" — I had no clue what to do; I played with book and computer (too easy), old and new phones, then did some stuff with my iPhone and my old drawer of CDs… then shazam! (get it?)
I saw my guitar sitting on a chair and remembered my iPhone has the PocketGuitar app..
So there you go, traditionald and contemporary guitars, though not much tension.
I have been so energized in photography since last summer D’Arcy turned me on to the Dailyshoot – a clever idea to expanding your photography skills.
Each day, the Dailyshoot tweets an assignment of something we need to capture; then people post a tweet to @dailyshoot with a link to their photo, and their website aggregates them in a clever visual display.
So this way, I have each day at least one thing I need to aim for with photography. Sometimes it is easy, other times it makes me contrive something others I fudge it with a clever caption or interpretation. Since starting, 88 daily shoots ago, I have not missed a day– sometimes like when traveling it is just an iPhone shot.
I am doing this in conjunction with the 2010/365 daily photo project but I never double dip…. I have found though, that most days, the dailyshoot assignment is the leading thing for my photo efforts, and it has been a great driver, motivator, and something that makes me stretch some each time.
