Grab your camera and walk out your front door, but take note to a few common themes in these photos:

  • Square is the new rectangle.  The Square format is coming back bigger then ever!
  • Timing is everything.  The street right in front of your house will look different at sunrise, mid-day and sunset, and like a different world at night.  Experiment with shooting the same scene at different times
  • Seasonal changes drastically effect photos.  There are some summer, winter, spring and fall photos here.  Take note to how interesting a winter scene would be if it was summer.
  • Angle of view.  Most people take photos while standing up, but experiment with getting down to ground level, or standing on a bridge looking down.
  • Utilize a tripod for longer exposures at night

As a photographer, I've always found it really interesting to try and go shoot what I commonly see in my neighborhood in a new an unique manner. Give it a try, photo walks through your own neighborhood can often reveal amazing new things you never knew were there, and use these 33 photos as some inspiration!
