Default New Challenge - Dec. 15 - Dec 28 -- A Stitch in Time

Some photos posted in recent challenges inspired me to come up with this challenge. Also, it was a shooting assignment either in a class I took or in a book I have.

The idea is simple. Shoot the exact same scene at different times. We're looking for differences in lighting, shadows, content (more in a moment), etc. In the morning you have the golden hour of dawn. In the evening, you also have a golden hour but it's not the same. Throughout the day, the lighting and shadows are constantly changing.

Now, about "content". Consider a parking lot at a mall or other location. You could take a shot with the lot empty and another when it is full. Some shots in between could show traffic coming and going. A sports stadium (large or small) provides similar opportunities. The beach provides similar options.

I think you get the idea. Pick a location and carefully note or mark the camera location and settings. Come back to this same location two or three times during the day or evening and shoot from that same exact spot.

Post two or three shots illustrating the results of you experiment in time.

Please put A Stitch in Time in your subject line.
