One of my favorite photographic challenges, particularly if I find myself wondering what to tackle next, is to pick a word. One word. And then go out and attempt to make an image that captures the very essence of the word.
These photos represent, to me, the word subtle.
It’s a helpful exercise to challenge yourself, or your photo friend, to take a predetermined number of photos that simply represent the chosen word. Such exercises help you to see (see Ed’s earlier post) your environment in, hopefully, new and creative ways.
Here are a few words worth shooting: consolation, dissonance, gravitas, metaphor, missing, fractured, elevate…
What mood or feelings come to mind when you consider these words? Let that mood, those feelings, marinate for a while and then go grab your camera.
