Photo Challenges - Challenge Your Photographic Eye

Photo Challenges can make photography interesting. You can take an ordinary household objects and figure out ways to photograph them. What I found is that I occasionally like to take certain objects that you use every day...and figure out what I can do to make them look interesting. Other people like alter the object and make new objects out of it, but I like to test myself out by seeing if I can make objects interesting by perspective. That is the essence of the photographic eye.

Take for example a toilet paper roll - yes, that's a weird subject. Well...what else but a challenging subject:

Yes, I know. I must be incredibly bored to photograph toilet paper.

You can do the same with Christmas lights.

These were done with the D300s and 50mm f/1.8 D

Learn to see photographically and let your photography ideas take off.
