Opening My Inner Eye

Peppers and Pak Choy

Peppers and Pak Choy

I have recently started reading the book Extraordinary Everyday Photography by Brenda Tharp and Jed Manwaring. The aim of the book is to dismiss the perception of new photographers that you need to travel to exotic places to capture beautiful and interesting photos.

The authors encourage you to take regular “boring” objects in and around your house or neighbourhood and try to make them more interesting when you shoot. They also encourage you to take multiple shots of the same objects, applying the rules of composition, exploring different angles and perspectives as well as different times of the day exploring lighting scenarios.

This image is my first installment in the “Around the House Project” or “AtHP”, that I’ll be embarking on in an effort to develop my photographic eye.

Walked into the kitchen one evening after coming home from work and the colours of the peppers and pak choy instantly grabbed my eyes.
