Photo Exercise #1: Chinatown/Theater District(Stuff Magazine Revisited)

May 11, 2011 § 2 Comments

Last night I gave myself an assignment shooting with a somewhat easy objective and a set time limit. This idea was to allow you to just create pictures instead of worrying about shooting portfolio-caliber work. If you decide to do one of these exercises on a late night whim, all the better. Last night my friend Kitty Dare and I decided to head to Chinatown at 1am and shoot for one hour, documenting things we saw around us with no specific subject. It was open-ended, but difficult if you can’t turn your brain off. I found this particular exercise helped with working  under pressure and with tight restrictions. Which as a photographer, is something that’s unavoidable.

In the end, we shot our six favorite pictures. Here are mine.
