Amateur Photography

Here’s some random pictures I’ve taken that I thought I’d share with you all. I love photography. It’s definitely something I want to dig deeper into!

Zimbabwean Art Exhibit

I found this in the middle of Hartsfield – Jackson Intl Airport. Most of the sculptures focus on the importance of Black womanhood in Zimbabwean society. The exhibit reminded me of my great-grandmother. Her tough love and strong spirit was felt by everyone she knew — kind of like the women in these sculptures.

Depiction

I had to take these photos as a part of a scavenger hunt for a DTH blog post. It was pretty cool. I enjoyed this piece as well as taking the photos! Each find in the hunt had different instructions. I attempted to fulfill all of them but, since I was alone, that didn’t always pan out.

photo 1
Imprint – include a shoe in your photo with the shoe impression. Success.
photo 2
Yellow brick – include the yellow brick and a body part in the photo. Success.
photo 3
Hooked up – photograph a personal item that is suspended from one of the hooks. Success.
photo 4
Fauxn – photograph someone using a mobile phone and include the pay phone in the picture. No success…but he is using the payphone!!
photo 5
Pink metal – Photograph the pink stairs with someone *not* standing on them. Success (I sat and took a selfie!).
photo 1
Risers – Photograph someone from behind the stairs. Success.
photo 2
Black lines – Take an extreme closeup of the mural so that the content of the photo is abstracted beyond recognition. Success.
photo 3
Fisheye – take a selfie in this mirror. Success.
photo 4
Aloud – photograph a sound being made. Success (it was HARD to do this).
photo 5
Unstapled – photograph someone trying to remove a staple from the pole, using whatever tools they have on them. Success (she used a key!)
photo 1
Inclined – place someone against the fence or the wall. Face uphill while you take the photo. No success (I’m looking downhill. Boooooo.)
photo 2
Letters – place someone within the space of this window, forming his/her body into the shape of a letter. No success (I was alone…cut me some slack).
photo 3
Back Room – compose a photo from within the “room” created between the dumpsters, fence, tank and outbuilding. Success.
