7 Days, 7 Photos Challenge, day 2

“Seven days. Seven black and white photos of your life. No people. No explanation. Challenge someone new each day”. 


Today I would like to invite Foodzesty to participate in this challenge!

Blogging University, Day 2

Today’s assignment was titled: “Street”. The goal was to practice taking wide angle, establishing shots, in an attempt to set a scene. We were encouraged to wander around, take photos from different angles. We were also reminded that we may have to climb some stairs to get a better view. I decided my “street” would be my climbing gym, that way I could combine my workout with my photography assignment. It turns out that it is quite difficult to take pictures while I am climbing or belaying my daughter, so only half were useable!



These three shots were taken from the top of adjacent walls, approximately 30 feet high. I climbed to the top and my daughter, who was belaying, suspended me while I took the pictures.



For these images I lay on the ground and angled the camera upward.

It was fun to climb and photograph the gym, and I did learn about a few new features on my camera. Hopefully, I will do better on the next assignment. I did get three projects done, two of which were lead climbing!
