We would like you to go on a treasure hunt for some of the images we suggest below and capture them with your camera (or smartphone). Print at least 10 (preferably in color) and bring them to the Workshop. We will be using them as part of one of the in-class exercises.
Photographic Treasure Hunt
Hunt for and photograph some of the following:
1. Spirals in nature.
2. A human face in a man-made object or objects.
3. A chess set in a skyline.
4. Male or female raindrops.
5. An animal in a cloud.
6. A part of your car or bike that reminds you of your favorite food.
7. Fruits you can arrange to make a human portrait.
8. A reflection of yourself in a store window.
9. Living people who look like they belong in another century.
10. Inanimate objects that appear as if they are in love.
The above are only suggestions. You can photograph something else if you wish. The pictures don’t have to be literal representations. They also don’t have to look good—as a matter of fact, the less perfect, the better.
Feel free to take family members on your treasure hunt. Chances are they will see things that you don’t.
