Seeing Beyond Sight
use all your senses – except your eyes
This experience isn’t about blindness – it is
noticing and paying attention with more than your eyes.
Take the plunge – we dare you.
FIVE SIMPLE GUIDELINES
Can be done alone, with informal photo groups/clubs, at conferences, in schools or as a workshop [sample agendas].
- Pair up w/ a friend & take turns w/ a blindfold & camera
- Try to complete as many tasks as you can
- Embrace the whole experience as much as picture taking
- Share your photos in SBS Challenge Flickr Group
- Dare friends to do it
