I sat at my desk during lunch the other day creating a list of photography projects for this winter. I was focusing on indoor projects since the weather and lack of light after work has hindered my exploring with the camera. Surprisingly I was able to create a fairly long list which I hope will keep me occupied as we head into the snowy, cold part of winter.

This is what I am going to call my Game Pieces project. I have seen numerous variations on Google+ and the strongest influence would be Steve Johnson’s Black and White Games gallery. I read Steve’s book The Minimalist Photographer last year and have been following his blog ever since. My goal is to explore monochrome images with the effect of light and shadows. I will also be playing with depth of field so I can more quickly select the right aperture when I am out with the camera.
