Here’s my shot for today’s Daily Shoot assignment.
“Power plugs are ubiquitous. Can you make a creative photo of such a common thing? Try it today!”
This prompt absolutely sucked. It’s a power plug- what’s photogenic about a power plug? Oh well. I thought about going against the grain and taking a shot as if it were looking out of the power outlet instead of looking at it, but I soon realized that when you take off the cover you just get two big holes so that wasn’t going to work. I went around taking pictures of outlets from different angles and didn’t have anything worthwhile until I took a picture of my roommate’s aquarium timer. I took a shot and realized how much it looked like a scared face so that’s the direction I took with my photo. I edited it using Picnik to look more like a horror film shot and here it is.
