Sober Photography (or Art) Project: Assignment #11

Time for a new photography project! It’s been awhile 🙂  You can be a photographer, or a painter or a drawer… So time to dust off the camera, and get ready to photograph, draw or paint something lovely…

Learn more about the idea of having a sober hobby here. See the results from previous projects here.

This is open for anybody, you don’t have to be a fancy ass photographer. No inner critic allowed. Are you ready?

Assignment #11 … Flowers

Take a picture of flowers. They can be a treat you bought yourself cuz you’re sober. They can be flowers from the garden, or a flowered print on the bedspread. They don’t even have to be YOUR flowers. You can interpret this however you like.

  • DEADLINE: Wednesday, October 23 @ 12 noon Eastern. Yes, a short deadline. The longer the deadline, the more likely we are to procrastinate, oui?
  • The format is open: for photos, you can use your camera phone or a nice camera. For drawings, paintings, just take a picture (or scan) and email to me.
  • The project must be original, and produced AFTER the assignment is received (like, no going through past pictures taken, it has to be new).
  • If you suck at photo adjustments or cropping, send it anyway with a note that you’d like me to adjust.
  • Send as LARGE a file size as you can manage (up to 12MB per image).  Don’t reduce for size.  the bigger the better.
  • Um, you have to be sober …
  • One entry per person per assignment (think of the size of my inbox!)

NOTE: Find some flowers, take a picture.  It’ll turn out better than you think it will. This is a fun project, you remember fun right? I learned all about fun by doing this with Christina.

Here’s a sample to get you going, here are my sober treat flowers that i bought myself to celebrate the end of the wedding catering.
