Sober Photography (or Art) Project: Assignment #16

Time for a new photography project! 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…

If you’re new to the blog, you can 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. Do not procrastinate. Are you ready?

Assignment #16 … Weather

The goal for this assignment is to take a (great) picture of any kind of weather (no matter where you live, you have weather!).

  • DEADLINE: Tuesday, June 17 @ 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 …
  • ONLY one entry per person per assignment (think of the size of my inbox!)

NOTE: Find something and 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.

I want to put this online, to hold myself accountable. I want to document the noise in my head. I'm tired of thinking about drinking. date of last drink: june 30, 2012

  • Can’t believe I made 180 days. Thank you Belle and Rebecca for all of your support and cheerleading!! I am enjoying the glitter and unicorns in my celebration parade!! Big hugs to both of you 🙂

  • I love it! A photography assignment! My hobby that I have time for in sobriety, and a photoshoot-hike at a local rose garden is my sober treat for today–perfect timing to re-affirm that I’m on the right path here with Belle and all of you!

    Happy photo-ing!

  • Thanks for the shout out today Belle. I’m giddy with excitement on this milestone day. Thanks for all of your support and encouragement. I’m in awe of your commitment to all of us. We will be having some weather here in memphis today so it will be a good photo op!
