Assignment 14: Showing Scale in Photography

Last year one of my most popular posts was Showing Scale.  Now, it’s your turn to show something to scale by using a reference within your photograph.  It can be something big, small or in between as long as I can tell its size.

Hot Air Balloons are big but how big? This photo gives the answer in comparison to the people, vehicles and structures.

As in the other assignments, do not send me your photos. What I would like you to do is post them on your blog, flickr or other photo sharing site, personal website or any other place on the Internet where you can place a link to it here by making a comment to this blog entry. Then we can visit those sites and enjoy everyone’s way of Showing Scale.

Please, have your photos posted on or before Midnight (your time), Wednesday, July 20, 2011. Don’t have a place to post? Might be a good time to start up a blog or join a photo community like flickr.  As I have done for all the Assignments, I’ll put together a recap with my comments.

If you have any questions, leave me a comment and I will be happy to answer them. By the way, I would really appreciate it if you would help spread the word about this assignment so we can get lots of people to participate. Blog it, tweet it, email it and talk about it to your fellow photographers, bloggers, friends, family and pets. Thank you

    I wondered if this assignment was coming soon! Would it be fair to say you’d be looking for something that folks might not otherwise know the scale?


  2. Hmm.. what to photograph, what to photograph…… I think this calls for something macro 😉 I’ll do my best to participate this time, but I can’t promise. The deadline is only a few days after we get back from vacation.

    I might have something from this past weekend. I’m in the midst of setting up a new computer (transferring everything from the old one). Hopefully that won’t take days to do, and I can join in the assignment fun. 🙂
