Here’s some stuff I’ve been doing recently–some for fun, some serious:
New Storyline Created for Middle-Schoolers.
I just finished a personalized story created especially for the 13-15 year old age group and am excited at the potential it creates. A fantasy with a bit of a moral twist, your pre-teen might find this a good read. It takes them through the highly possible situation of a friendship tiff and the moral solution.
One Day In May
Apparently, this theme was done in 2003, internationally. A specific day was chosen, then from the time each photographer (whether amateur or professional) arose, they took one picture every hour until they went to sleep and finally posted them online.
It was repeated on May 10, 2009 — I am not sure who has participated this year, but I chose to try it for the first time. Below, you’ll find my One Day in May, 2009. Some photos were taken in situations where I could not use flash or the effect would have been lost…so I manipulated them to create black and white images, which then enhanced the images. I also found myself sidetracked and missed a few “hours”…
