Day Nineteen: Typology Tuesday Communication

Tuesday, February 19th:  Alphabet Soup

Most of us communicate through visual means - and the biggest one of them (and how you're reading this) is the alphabet. It's fairly amazing that with the use of 26 letters we can create everything from ransom notes to love poems. So, this week's typology is the alphabet - find the entire alphabet during the day - feel free to create any that you can't find. Also...it doesn't have to be the english language one...you could even make one up!

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. 

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.
