This is the true test of courage. To sit in the middle of the interstate north of Atlanta. The Terminator sunglasses help.
Please have a seat. Yup - this week it's gonna be a Chair that will be your shot's subject. You see, it's not about what exactly you are shooting, but about the story you can create from it. What comes to mind when thinking about this ordinary subject? Who is sitting on this chair? Or standing? Where is the chair? What story can you create from this simple item. Chairs come in all sizes and shapes - sofas, executive chairs, ornate antiques, busted up rocking chairs that have seen generations of a family. Park benches, bus stops, some weird looking chairs straight out of the mind of Tim Burton - it's all fair game. You can show the close-up wrinkles of a chair, or make your own small chair out of paper clips. Think about the story a chair can tell - a chair in a barbershop that can be the focus of a neighborhood or perhaps the small feet of a toddler reaching up to grab something. The poignancy of a wheelchair and the strength of the people who sit in them. You can have a subject ON the chair be the focus as well, but remember that the chair ought to be a strong and clear element in your image.
