2015 Challenge, Week 14: NUMBERS – MEASUREMENT

It’s time for another numbers challenge. This week you’ll be shooting measurements. We use measurements in all aspects of life. We measure time in years, hours, minutes, and seconds. When you travel, distance is measured miles or kilometers. When you cook, you measure out ingredients. For your shot this week shoot anything related to numerical measurement.

Some measurements are obvious, and part of your everyday life. Rulers and measuring tapes can be found in pretty much any house. Even commonplace items can make great shots by controlling the depth of field and experimenting with framing.

These days many measurements are digital, but older devices that used analog measurement might make more interesting subjects.

Digital measurements show you an exact value and can provide a creative shot with the right framing and perspective.

The shot below shows the odometer (actual distance traveled) and the speedometer (used to measure speed). Any number that has anything to do with measurement is fair game this week. It can be actual measurement or the device used to make a measurement.

The rules are pretty simple:

  • Post one original photograph (Your Image) shot each week per theme posted on this blog to Google+Facebook, or Flickr (or all three). Tag the photo #photochallenge.org or #photochallenge2015.
  • The shot should be a new shot you took for the current weekly theme, not something from your back catalog or someone else’s image.
  • The posted image should be a photograph, not a video.
  • Don’t leave home without your camera. Participating in the 2015 Photo Challenge is fun and easy.
