Kat Sloma from The Kat Eye View of the World features a series called” Exploring with a Camera.”
I was immediately drawn to her description of why she chose the name for her series, “Exploring with a Camera” rather than using the words “challenge” or “assignment.” Her series is intended to inspire, to see the world in a different way and make it a fun experience.
The first series I took part in was called waiting to click. Waiting for all of the elements to be in place, to capture the photo you had in mind. On a chilly April morning, we attended a reenactment of the Battle on the Old North Bridge in Concord, commemorating the opening battle of the American Revolutionary War.
We had a lot of rain in New England this spring, and the banks of the river were overflowing. There was a large overflow of water in the field right next to the path where the “Colonists” would be marching. I waited for the right moment, when the colonists marching by would be reflected in the water – and the colors of the red, blue and yellow jackets would add more interest to the photo.
