We develop intagible skills by doing things… Practical projects teach us in a way that theory can not. While both go hand-in-hand to develop a well-rounded understanding of a craft, often the practical aspect is left out when discussing photography skill development online.
With this series of projects in photography, we hope that we will be able to grow your imagination, excite your imagination and help you to see differently. We hope that you create amazing images as you explore the possibilities that these projects offer, and come back to share your amazing creations with us.
Participate in Our Photo Projects
Welcome to the ‘Photo Project’ series, your creative bootcamp! Think of these as hobby projects to keep you from being bored. While participating in the projects, expand your imagination beyond what we talk about, and see how you can transform these projects into something unique to yourself. Take the idea, make it your own, and share what you create with us. Be a part of the BPT community, and grow with us.
Challenge Yourself – Improve Your Skills!
Taking on challenges curated by others (in this case, by the BPT authors), can be like a breath of fresh air, creatively speaking.
In a way, it’s like receiving an assigmnent from a client – suddenly you need to see through new eyes, and think of interesting possibilities, if you’re to achieve the client’s goals. It stretches you so that you grow, so that you develop your own way of seeing, your own ideas and styles. This is one of the stepping stones to get you there, in our opinion.
The Creative Photography Challenge Process, and the Results
In the process of completing these challenges, we hope that you will learn to better analyze your images with a more objective eye.
Critical analyis of your own images is an important part of this growth, and is a skill level that’s very difficult to attain. As you work your way through these projects, you’ll also develop your ability to previsualise the image that you want to create, even before you press the shutter button.
So, are you ready to embark on this journey? Whether you are using a smartphone, or a top-of-the-line camera, the only prerequisite is your enthusiasm. Join us and take the plunge with these projects… Finally, don’t forget to share your images with us.
