FALLCROP 2012: One Hour Photo Challenge

FALLCROP 2012: One Hour Photo Challenge

Postby anja_wade » Oct 27th, '12, 12:00 pm

Hi Everyone,
Hope you're all enjoying the crop so far! I've got a different sort of challenge for you guys today. In the past, I've always given you a list of objects or people to photograph. Well, this time I'm leaving you a little more room for interpretation, because I want you to take photos that represent intangible things. I've come up with a list of ten words. Your pictures need to capture what each word means to you. Your interpretations can be serious, emotional, sentimental, and heartfelt, or silly and fun. Be as obvious or as cryptic as you want - it's totally up to you! This should be interesting!
Here's your word list:

solitude
contentment
bliss
sweetness
light
trust
comfort
hope
strength
peace

Here are the rules.
1. All photos must be taken specifically for this challenge during the hour.
2. You have one hour for taking your picture, plus an additional 15 minutes to edit and share your pictures.

Have fun with it! One winner will be chosen from all the entries that are submitted by the deadline - 2:15PM eastern time, 10/27/12.

Here are some sample photos I took using the word list...

top to bottom, left to right:
strength, bliss, comfort, peace, light, trust, contentment, hope (as in "I hope I can get a hair appointment for next week"), sweetness, solitude

Light... I love how the sun reflects off the snow, the leaves (the few remaining), and through the branches of our tree.

This is awesome Anja, and I love what you can do w/ your camera phone, makes everyday things easier to capture I think.

Yes!
And I was thinking when we get our pictures taken and posted, they could simply be printed out and would make a fantastic mini album using Alissa's book class as the technique! It's like the projects and challenges all work together around here.

So awesome!

I love this challenge. It falls right at my lunch hour, though...and with bingo up directly next, I don't think I'll make the time constraint. I think I'll still take the challenge, just for myself. :)

Marti, I love the light in your photo - light does such cool things!

Crystal, yes! Even if you don't make the time limit, you should still do the challenge! and I love the idea of making them into a book!

Great Challenge! HAve all my photos, but don't know how to upload them like you did. The way I'm doing it I have to do each one individually. How did you do yours Anja?

Thanks for the help!

I made a photo collage of mine in photoshop. If you aren't sure how to do it, there are some online tools that will do it for you. I'll find one to share.
But if you're really crunched for time, go ahead and post them separately. ;D

with more time I would make it purdy :)

some were literal...some not...

not sure if you can tell the one..it's a onsie with "booty-ful" on the back for part of our baptism gift for tomorrow. not very spiritual but total sweetness :)

solitude --max
contentment --chase
bliss--our shed being completed
sweetness--baby booty
light--i keep our front door open even when it is FREEZING (we have a great storm door) just for the amazing light we get throughout the day
trust--the hubser
comfort--my nana made the little doggie ceramic piece...she died three weeks ago and i kept this and it is comforting seeing it in henry's room
hope--i hope one day my son will clean his room
strength--courage=strenght...i present i bought for a friend who is a breast cancer survivor
peace--and my wine fridge. 'nough said there ;)

Ellen, it looks like you're a winner!
Guess what - my image for comfort is also a ceramic object made by my Nana! That plaque of the little boy and girl. What a coincidence!
PM me your email address so I can arrange for you to get your prize!
Congrats!
