“The virtue of the camera is not the power it has to transform the photographer into an artist, but the impulse it gives him to keep on looking.”

Here’s a list of my latest exercise plan for Spring, for February or who knows- for 2011? I cut bits and pieces of a list I found on the web and came up with this list that works well with my vision and things I want to shoot. I invite you to join me, using your fancy camera, point & shoot or iPhone. Put these ideas on the calendar. I would love to see how you interpret the list and how you exercise your creativity.

Photograph your definition of “Sunday Afternoon”
Photograph something that reflects you
Photograph two subjects that don’t go together
Randomly pick a window in your house and make photographs from and
through that window everyday for a week
Photograph shadows
Photograph strangers
Photograph something that reminds you of a vivid dream you once had
Photograph colors as if they were the emotion they represent
Photograph something or someone while lying on your back
Photograph the concept of waiting
Photograph a sunrise or sunset
Photograph mother’s cooking
Photograph something extreme
Photograph the juxtaposition of young and old
Photograph silence
Photograph your meal
Photograph your favorite form of art
Photograph a self portrait
