Day Fourteen: Pairings

Thursday, February 14th: Influence

Strangely enough, today I'm not going to ask you to shoot anything. Instead I want you to think about how images, and their meanings can change when they're paired with other images. Select some of your favorite images and start by looking at how they can work together.  Don't just combine things that make sense...go beyond and try very dissimilar images together. Also, see how it works when it's just a few (2) images or many (9+)...what does that change? What about size? Make a printout that's small and then tile another to be as big as you can. Put them on the wall and live with them for a few days. If you don't have a framing app, here's several: 

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.
