Just for fun, I decided to participate in the Tech Guy Radio Show photographyÂ competition. Â Each month (or so)Â Leo Laporte and Chris Marquardt create a photo assignment forÂ listeners, mostly aimed at encouraging photographers to try new things. Â TheÂ currentÂ photo assignment for November/December 2010 is titled “Tidy Mess“. Â To make things interesting they have also asked that the photo break a photography rule of some sort.
For the past week I’ve been keeping my eye out for “Tidy Messes”, which is not as easy as one might think. Â Then the other night my wife started working on a cake in the kitchen and the counter was a mess, ah…perfect! Â Actually the truth is, she had already started cleaning up before it dawned on me that this could be a good photo opportunity. Â So I pulled a few things from the dish washer, grabbed the towel and setup the “scene” again.
I decided to tilt the camera and distort the horizon line (breaking a rule), which seemed to work. Â So we’ll see what happens…
