Alphabet Soup | Finding Letters in the World Around Us
This is an assignment that I ve given to students for over 35 years. It started with freshmen at MSU and continued at the Dunedin Fine Art Center and finally here at FCCP.
Find the appropriate letter for this assignment from the chart above. Please do not get ahead of the assignment and post letters that have not been assigned yet.
We can find our alphabet in the world around us. Letters are everywhere we look, in different sizes, shapes and colors. Sometimes repeated, sometimes alone, sometimes hidden. The letters may appear as your main subject or as part of the negative space. Over the next 26 weeks, I’m challenging everyone to look around and share with the group your best image of a letter. Each week we’ll focus on a different letter. This challenge will be fun and help us see our surroundings a bit differently.

The rules are simple. Post your best image (just one image) of the assigned letters. We will have a new assignment every two weeks.
You can catch up if you fall behind and post any letter that you missed earlier in the alphabet.
If you find a letter that fits later in the alphabet, store the image away and post it when this challenge is ready.
Good luck and good shooting.
Where you buy your gear matters. You expect to get what you ordered and you want to pay a low price for it. The retailers I recommend below are the ones I trust for my own purchases.
