The Creative Zone – Pushing Your Own Limits

Thursday, November 29th, 2007

Over the years of learning about photography certain lessons stick out in my mind. One of these was the Mailbox Assignment. The assignment was simple; 36 shots of a mailbox. It had to be the same mailbox, oh, and by the way . . . each shot had to be uniquely different. Sounds easy enough, right? Well, let’s see . . . there is front, back, left side, right side, shot from above, or shot from below. That’s six, only thirty more shots to go.

An Eye by Gloel

You could shoot with the flag up or the flag down, or shoot just the flag itself. You could shoot with the mailbox door open or closed or somewhere in between. Congratulations! You are now up to twelve shots, only twenty four more to go. You could shoot with a little mail in the box, or a whole lot of mail, or somewhere in between. As you can see the first 15 or even 20 shots aren’t that hard, but they aren’t the point of the assignment.
