83 — Photography 20 steps from your door

Pho­tog­ra­phy pod­cast #83 is based on a sug­ges­tion by Casil403 (Thanks Casil!) from our forum. This pod­cast describes the exer­cise of pho­tograph­ing what­ever you want with the restric­tion that it must be 20 steps from your door. This restric­tion forces you to “see”¯¿½ what you are oth­er­wise too busy to see. It’s an excel­lent exer­cise that really gets you to zero in on your sense of sight. Feel free to try this exer­cise for your­self and post the image some­where and link to it in the com­ments for all to see. The pho­tos below are images taken within 20 steps of my own door.

    Lovely set Glenn! Glad you liked the exercise!

  2. Marko, just loved this pod­cast even though it was rather short. Went out myself today after the rain and got a few shots. Posted them on the forum which you can find here: http://www.photography.ca/Forums/f11/20-steps-my-front-door-10362.html

    Short but inspir­ing pod­cast. I have been in a bit of a photo-block recently so after lis­ten­ing I went out­side and took a few pho­tos within 20 steps. This is what I came up with:
    Thanks for another great podcast.

    Cool stuff, Marko. I do not need to be encour­aged to pho­to­graph stuff within 20 steps of my door, though.

    These “mush­rooms” were in the back recently.
