The Curves of Your Lives

Call me crazy, but at 64 I'm starting a Masters of Business Administration program at Georgia State University and Global Economics is one my first two courses. Our professor, Dr. Daniel Quiggin, is explaining how all trade events, from a swap to a full out purchase, can be presented on an Indifference Curve. Add two Indifference Curves in opposition and you have an Edgeworth Box that can describe with some precision the optimal trades that can be made between two individuals or entities. And we all do this every day without knowing it.

Assignment

This week's theme takes a detour from the straight and narrow to something more natural and organic - curves. Let's capture things that aren't straight in shape - the organic curve of body parts, a winding country path, maybe even a beach ball. Look at the way the curve is defined - what seems straight from one perspective, could well be curvy if you take a few steps to get in the right position. There's plenty of curves that could grab your eye - architecture has edges of buildings and stairwells, food photography involves plenty of arcs and curves as well. Roads and meandering streams and rivers abound with curves, if you like taking landscapes. You could also abandon the obvious and shoot something abstract like fabrics or liquid droplets - the possibilities are limitless. You could even use radial curves as a base for your photos composition just as you would leading lines - except the lines here aren't straight but arc toward your subject. Curves in your photography can often lend an air of softness and comfort which could just be enough to make a good image, a great one. Be observant, change your perspective if you need to, and do remember to be flexible.
