Blind Faith

Exercise

For an entire day, shoot all your pictures without looking through the viewfinder or screen. Don’t look at or review the pictures afterward either – at least not until the end of the day. Shoot at least 50 pictures.

At the end of the day, take your first look at your shots. Pick out ten pictures that are particularly interesting, satisfying, or surprising. In your journal, write a short note about each of the ten pictures – why you selected the image, and what about it is distinct or meaningful to you. Write about any surprises that resulted from this exercise. Is there anything about this experience that will influence your shooting in the future?
