WEEKLY INFORMAL CHALLENGE: WEEK 56

Post Fri May 06, 2011 5:10 pm


Weekly Challenge: "Portrait with a Story"

Post a portrait for us and tell us a brief story about it.

"Every portrait that is painted with feeling is a portrait of the artist, not of the sitter."
Oscar Wilde


A few simple rules:

1. Themes are posted on Fridays to give you the weekend to come up with a FRESH shot for the challenge to post through Monday.

2. This is about interaction, learning, being challenged and having fun so... HAVE FUN!

3. The themes are specific but interpretations are broad. Stay on theme but PLEASE feel free to think outside the box.

4. Look at others' submissions, comment as moved to do so and offer supportive and constructive feedback. Please don't just post for exposure. Look and at least comment on some.

5. Did we already mention: HAVE FUN!!!

Cute little high energy model with a small melt down. Crying to mommy because she wants the beach outfit back on and we want a ballerina. Dark corner of a cluttered studio, quickly turn around one strobe, edit out studio mess and waaaa la. A beautiful moment between mom and daughter. I love nice surprises!

"Portrait of an old man with grafitti" --- here is his moment of remembrance of things past, when all was well ordered. He rages perhaps, albeit quietly, at the chaos creeping into the present:
