SoFoBoMo #2: closing in fast
I’ve been busy with work and family life lately and haven’t had much time to devote to my photography. That doesn’t mean I’m not thinking about it, but I just haven’t been able to put together a decent period of concentrated thought on the subject. And that’s too bad, because SoFoBoMo #2 is almost here.
Last year, my parameters were:
- new camera
- square format
- environmental portraits
This year, I want to mix it up a little. I’d like to do more portraits, but unless something changes significantly, I don’t think I’ll have the time to visit all the subjects that I want to, unless I do something like street photography. The same thing happened last year, so I ended up with my family as the subjects. That worked out all right, but I don’t want a repeat.
So…with that in mind, here’s where I’m at so far for this year’s parameters:
- current camera
- square format (again)
- color or B&W (not decided yet, but it will be strictly one or the other)
- still life
That’s my stake in the ground, and now I have to let those constraints help me out. I may also restrict the focal length as well, just to see how that steers me. Macro is a strong possibility. Maybe also abstracts.
