I took part in [personal profile] auto_destruct's artslam week idea, so, time to share what I did!

I was challenging my self to take at least one photo for each day, that was going outside the usual boundaries of what I do with photos. I don't think that all the result are impressive, but, I tried.

Fried worm on the sidewalk... this poor little creature literally just fried because it was so hot outside. I took this picture because, who is going to remember a dead worm and try to make art from it? It seemed like someone needed to remember it.

Car headlights.

Taking pictures straight up like this can be a little boring, but I think this turned out okay. In the bottom right, I think it's a bug, or a hummingbird...?

Bliss between nature and civilisation.

Tiny constellations.

Two focuses. Trying to capture what I see lying on the grass in the park...

Saving the best for last... cloudy moon. I actually like this one.

I don't feel like I learned a lot from this, so I guess I need to push my self more? I did learn more about how to do moon photography, and I'm really happy with the results, so, that was something. And, it does encourage me to experiment more with photos/scenes that I don't think are that good.

I really like some of these a lot. I also learned that I am okay to look at spider webs if I know for sure that there is no spider on it. Although I think it is much easier that that one isn't a stereotypical web structure.

What is the artslam week thing?

The moon photo is beautiful. It looks like it's sitting on a throne of clouds.

Oh, wow. There's some gorgeous shots in this. <3 (I think the dual focus one is my favourite. I don't think I've ever seen a dual focus photo before.)

And yay for learning more about moon photography! It is a marvellous photo. ^-^

Artslam week, I want to give it a go too but am too late to join? I have been busy with nest building stuffs and most of my things are still packed away, only my laptop and water kettle and ramen is out, I'm not sure if I can do art with ramen. Hmm, noodle art.

But, I guess it doesn't have to start on a specific day, if people are doing it the week before. Maybe I will set for myself to start the week after, next Monday (:

The moon is amazing! :D I agree with magi, it looks like it's sitting on a throne.

I also really like the headlights one, mostly for all the movement in it, even if it's hard to tell what it's of. And the last one is interesting -- I wish I knew more about photography so I could figure out what it is that isn't quite working as a whole, even when I find all the interesting components of it really nice. (Then again, I have that issue with drawing, too.)

Just another little thing -- if you don't feel so much like you've improved/learned stuff in just a week, but want to keep going, the slam's technically for a month. But I mean, it's one of those things where honestly, I'm running it super-casual, so people can pop in and out as they see fit, in like, weekly increments. (I think I'm probably going to continue the slam into August, just so I can keep up habits, but I don't expect everyone to!) So yes. Basically just saying if you wanted to keep going and maybe poking at stuff, and seeing if you can't work a few things out here and there, that's cool, but the alternative is also cool. I'm not sure why that needed a paragraph to say...aheh 9__9

I lovelovelooooooove the dual focus one, and the headlights one, and the moon one.

The dual focus one captured "lying in the grass" really well, and the headlights one is so perfectly "driving in rain."

The moon one, I think, would make a really awesome fabric print. Would it be OK if I attempted to design something using that photo?

I love that you find such beauty in "simple" things. I do too! And I adore the moon and spiderweb pictures. (And felt bad for the worm.)
