    Assignment: Choose a single subject or scene and make 40 different images of that subject/scene.

    For my subject, I picked a tree in our neighborhood that's just starting to show a preview of what fall will bring soon. Greens contrast with bright red leaves scattered through the canopy and surrounding grounds so I wanted to work different approaches to capture that feel of just the hint of fall around the corner.

    I ended up with 50 images (didn't count, just snapped away and when I headed home there were 50 on the card). Here's a select handful.

    All with GX1 + 75mm

    Nicely captured, Jay. Did you find this to be an interesting exercise? Did you feel like you had to push yourself to get 40 (or 50) shots of the same subject?

    Thanks. I did find it interesting, and it wasn't that much of a push to get 40+ images.

    I've been reinforcing in myself for months now to look for interesting compositions from different angles and approaches, so that part came a little easier than it might have 6 months ago. Taking that many of the same subject was new though. I generally would look for 2-3 different approaches then move on, so this was interesting to spend that much time and effort on a single subject.
