NEXT SHUTTER CHALLENGE – Due April 15th
A discussion occurred over at our buddy KD’s blog regarding our other buddy Scott’s latest challenge, Storytelling. The challenge set forth was a technical one using depth of field to tell a story through the fore, middle and background in a single shot. If you think of Ansel Adams’s work…
…the close trees, the valley in the middle and the grand mountains are all in focus, classic technical “storytelling”.
Well, the comments on KD’s site turned to discuss whether photos always had to tell a story or not. I became pretty passionate about it, basically saying that if a photo doesn’t tell a story than it is just snap shot. Viola! A challenge is born…
In ONE and only ONE shot, tell a complete story. Think before you click. Say something with your photo. Make us laugh. Make us think. Find the subject and cast it as the protagonist in a great moment.
AND HAVE FUN!
