One of the things I love about photography is the many, many ways one can create interesting images with a camera. I ran across a magazine "50 Photo Projects" recently. It has several projects that are doable for someone like me, who doesn't have a lot of extra equipment. For this month's Third Thursday Challenge I gave one of their projects a try.

On my morning walk I picked a variety of weeds, looking for different shapes. I then set up my little studio. All I needed was copy paper, camera, tripod, weeds, and a vase. I taped the paper to a glass door, placed the weeds in a vase in front of it, and set up my camera. The article even gave suggested camera settings, which is always a big help for me! I like the end results. It was a whole new way to use my macro lens and see nature.
I would have never tried this if it hadn't been for Brenda's Third Thursday Challenge. Her monthly challenge gives me that little extra push I need to look for new ways to use my camera. The challenge is not all about photography. You can try something new in any medium.
