Day Five: Typology Tuesday Face Forward

Tuesday, February 5th: Typology Tuesday - Faces

A typology is a collection where everything is the same type of thing. Think of it like a collection - that collection could be shapes/objects/places/parts...you name it. The only rule is that you compose each shot the same - so the "type" fills roughly the same amount of space in each frame, and is located in the same position.

This week's prompt will be Faces - which sounds fairly straightforward...but the reason I'm choosing it is because the word can mean so many things. It can refer to the image we put into the world, it can be the simple physical space at the front of our skull, it can be the surface of an object...it's fairly wide open. What does it mean to you? 

If you've just joined us, February is a 28 day creativity challenge with a new "prompt" each day to get you thinking in new ways. The goal is to just have fun, don't try to control too much, feel free to use a cell phone or any camera that's easy for you. Don't worry about the end results. With each prompt you can take it literally or not, you can wing it, google it, ask for people's opinions...whatever you want to do is perfect. Bottom line - it's supposed to be fun, there are no right or wrongs.
