This exercise is useful for sharpening your observational skills as an artist and for practicing the many ways to achieve good composition. It requires collecting one found object a day for a week, then photographing them in various configurations, choosing your favorites, and uploading them here for inclusion in our online gallery.
As you go about your daily walk or errands, keep on the lookout for small objects, preferably natural ones, that catch your attention in an unusual way. Pick one up and bring it to a collection spot in your home or studio.
