Creativity Exercise: Daily Life
We’ve so enjoyed exploring self portraits all month and we hope you’ve been able to try new techniques, experiment and document yourself!
This week your challenge is to create a self portrait that shows a part of your daily life.
Think about those things you do that you don’t feel are particularly photo worthy, and document that!
A few ideas to get you thinking:
loading/unloading the dishwasher
brushing kid hair
setting the table
putting on makeup
loading/unloading the car
buckling kids in car seats
Although the image itself will take on a documentary style, take some time to think about how to set up your camera so that you can still have intentional composition and lighting.
If you have an interval timer (Nikon shooters) on your camera, this might be a really great time to use it so that you can set things up and then just go about your routine.
And! If you’re feeling EXTRA ADVENTUROUS you could document your whole day in a series of self portraits, starting with your morning routine and ending with your going-to-bed routine.
Show us what you come up with so we can show you some love! Tag us on Instagram (@unscriptedmentoring) as we’d love to see a glimpse into your daily routines.
