Another Guest Challenge Awaits
So, the last time Paula Borkovic allowed me to post a guest challenge on Lost in Translation I covered how to tell a story through full colour photography by connecting emotively with your subject matter. It was a fun exercise, and I really enjoyed seeing everyone’s effort and feedback to each other. Sometimes, that’s very important. Paula has me back again, and this time I’ve explained a few steps that we can take in our aims to express ideas illustratively.
The drive is to tell a story through one or more black and white pictures by staying emotionally connected but also by utilizing illustrative techniques. This is to help pull the artist out of each of us. It doesn’t matter if you’re engaging in sports photography, wildlife photography, fine art nudes or a real tuffy like still life. It doesn’t mater if the subject matter is something that appeals to you or irritates you. There’s a story to be told.
Are you up for this self-challenge? Jump to Lost in Translation, take a look at this approach, take your time, take your best shot and have fun with this. Take on the challenge, and leave links to your pictures there or here.
Thank you again Paula for this opportunity.
I love how you expressed the theme through a street photography essay. Everyone recognizes that you are pushing yourself, and succeeding!
