The Weekly Zoot
After five weeks of daily shoot assignments I grew a little tired of seeing photos of things from around my house always showing up with the same walls as backgrounds. This week I saved up all my assignments and took a day trip to Taronga Zoo to take photos and try and satisfy each assignment's criteria. I wrote down the assignments to force myself to actually try and compose the requested components, rather than going through the photos afterwards hoping to join some dots.
It was a beautiful Autumn day with no clouds. Not the perfect day for shooting but the perfect day for sightseeing. And if you have any complaints about me already resorting to a gimmick for my photography challenges you should understand I was very close to doing a week of daily shoot assignments featuring Mocha Hot Cross Buns.
<b>Illustrate symmetry in a photograph today.</b>
<b>Make a photograph from an unusual point of view.</b>
<b>Make a photograph from an unusual point of view 2.</b>
This was more \"Animals who have unusual points of view.
<b>Focus on an edge today and make a photograph.</b>
<b>Focus on an edge today and make a photograph 2.</b>
Slightly more exotic.
<b>Focus on an edge today and make a photograph 3.</b>
There are heaps of edges here.
<b>Make a photograph of something shiny today.</b>
This was inadvertently an illustration of symmetry but advertently a photo of something shiny.
<b>Make a low contrast photograph today.</b>
<b>Make a photograph that features a grid of some sort today</b>
Each day a new assignment was posted and I would read it and think about what I might photograph at the zoo when the time finally came. By the time this assignment was posted I was seriously starting to think the universe wanted a Hot Cross Bun theme week.
That elephant photo was pretty low in value so here's some baby elephants to make up for it.
<b>Illustrate time in a photograph today.</b>
That was it for the assignments. Here's a few other photos.
Seal showing off.
And more baby elephants.
