It'd been a long work week and I needed to unwind a bit on Sunday, other than just laying on the couch with a book. Using inspiration from a photo exercise my partner had tried with students of his years ago, I suggested he and I go for a walk around the neighborhood and make pictures. The challenge of this exercise is to focus on only a given shape while photographing, as a way to see the world differently. I felt that triangles in "nature" would be a bit more rare than perhaps circles or rectangles, so we decided to stick with that. I only had my iPhone available for the exercise unfortunately – my 5D was at work – but I look forward to using my camera for future sessions, since it will obviously give me much more control over my exposures. I loved this study, this new way of looking at the neighborhood I'm already so familiar with. It really helped relax me, just walking around Neukölln for an hour, in the cold, just before dusk. All I looked for were triangles – nothing else mattered, and it's so interesting the different images I captured. Take a look here, and stay tuned for future exercises like this. I'm curious to experiment with color and textures too.
