Have you ever stuck on a prime lens and forced yourself to strictly use it with out reaching for the wide-angle or your telephoto? Have you ever taken 40 different shots of the same subject using the same lens? Ready for a challenge?
I was recently watching D-Town TV and they gave out an assignment for their final episode of the season. The assignment is to shoot 40 different pictures of a single subject. That is not for an event or of a place… just a single subject. Also zooming is not allowed, you must lock-down the zoom or use a prime lens.
So lets take a Korean spin on this and try and shoot 40 different shots of a Korean subject. Think about things that define the Korean Culture, choose one and photograph it. The ideas coming of the top of my head are:
- Kimchi (of course)
- Traditional Table Settings
- Traditional Craft work
There are a ton of things that you can do with this assignment. What i am going to try and do is create a slideshow of the 40 images and post it here after I am finished. The one this to be said is that you can zoom but you have to do it manually. I will be using my 50mm f1.4 for this. SO to zoom I have to physically move and that is of the challenge.
Have a great weekend and happy shooting!
