I read somewhere a blog post about a quick 30 minute photo challenge. The basic idea is you walk for 10 minutes, any direction you fancy, take photos for 10 minutes of what you find there, and then walk back home, which should take you approximately the final 1o minutes of the 30.
This time and location restriction should really focus your eye on capturing subjects in short space of time. No faffing about with different gear and gadgets, just get there and start snapping.
I fancied having a go, so at lunchtime today I put on a hat and coat, picked up my camera, and walked for ten minutes and started shooting. Here are the results.
I quite enjoyed completing this challenge today. I only used one lens, my trusty 50mm, for this. I think I’ll have another go at this but each time try a different lens, just to mix things up a bit. I’m thinking that a macro lens will really lent itself to this sort of challenge, so may try that next.
