Due to the outbreak of COVID-19 I, like so many others around the world find myself out of work for the next two weeks as the owners of the auto repair shop I work at as my daily grind have decided to close down in an effort to slow the spread of the virus.
So what’s an out of work photographer supposed to do while practicing self isolation and social distancing? I’ve decided to start a person photo project, capturing at least one photo a day, all while staying in my own back yard.
Not only will this get me out of the house to prevent me from going stir crazy, it will also be an exercise in creativity.
Each day I’ll be venturing out into my back yard, or the surrounding woods, where I’ll do the best I can to make at least one photograph. They may not all be good. Hell, many of them might turn out to be downright garbage. But at least I’ll be out with my camera.
Join the project.
Have you been cooped up inside due to the coronavirus? Whether you’ve got two acres or a tiny postage stamp, a house in the country or a small apartment, it doesn’t matter, even if you cant leave the confines of your home, get out your camera and exercise those creative muscles. Make at least one photo a day for as long as your isolation lasts. Share it in a blog post with “Isolation Project” in the tags, or follow me on Twitter and use the hashtag #IsolationPhotoProject.
Lets see what you got!
