Posting Date: Saturday, March 8, 2014
Online Background Information:
Additional Tips and Suggestions:
This challenge will be fun exercise that uses some of the skills we have already learned and practiced (e.g., shadows, light, composition variations, simplicity, black and white, street scenes). Your goal is to be creative with this challenge! Words and letters are everywhere and part of our daily lives. So you can undertake this task whether whether prefer your photo shoots settings inside or outside.
Subject matter includes signs, advertising, books, and handwritten text. You may also try some alphabet photography and develop a personal inventory of photos with letter shapes to create custom collages.
Please don't take the easy route and simply apply words to your image. Where is the challenge in that? However, if you want to get crafty with a photo editor, you can try your hand at filling type with photographic images.
Prepare one to three of your own photographic images that include words and letters, either as the subject matter or else in a supporting role. You may use photos from your personal inventory or take new ones for this challenge. It’s your choice. Please include any information or tips that may be of assistance to other participants (e.g., how you took the images, post-processing details, camera settings, what you learned). If you have more than one blog, please present your challenge photos on only one of them.
The linkup tool will be available the day before the challenge date (March 7) and a couple days thereafter. Don’t forget to set up a calendar reminder for yourself!
