100 Step Challange
August 19, 2009Posted by on
These were taken in Harrisburg, NC August 19, 2009
These were part of a challenge a friend shared with me from an article off of Photocritic. Here’s the excerpt from the article..
“The 100 step challenge is one I’ve promoted here on Photocritic before – because it’s one of those things I’ve found work incredibly well indeed. It’s easy: Grab your camera, and start walking. Count your steps. After 100 steps, stop where you are, and where you’re standing, you have to take a photograph.
“But there won’t be anything there”, I hear you cry. Well, yes, but that’s the point. The idea behind the 100 step challenge is to force yourself to see scenes and to create pictures even if there’s nothing there to be seen. It’s kind of like free association writing, where you just start writing, and keep your hand moving even if you have nothing to say – sometimes, the greatest things are created when you’ve run out of things to say.
Even if you don’t get a single good photo out of your 100-step challenge, you’ll have had a nice walk out of it, right?”
If you decide to take the challenge as well, please post a link in the comments here so we can see! 😀
