Critique this photo please!
I don't know how many of you guys read the FroKnowsPhoto blog, but I've been a fan of Jared's photo contests that he puts on weekly. He sets the theme and you shoot/submit something somewhat related, then people vote for the winners. Anyway, the theme this week was "silence" and this concept was the first thing that popped into my head. I wanted a super grungy style portrait with the tape over the mouth symbolizing someone being silent. This was one of the pictures I took.
Canon 70-200 f2.8 IS v2
Canon 420ex speedlight off camera as a slave using a modifier made from printer paper.
I like the picture, but to me I think of "fear" instead of "silence".
Yeah, that's more of the feel I was going after.
But I thought the theme was "silence" not "fear"? If you said "Hey, I am doing a photo contest and the theme is "fear"..." I'd say you nailed it.
You can submit a picture of a roast duck and still win if it's a good photo, it doesn't *have* to follow the theme exactly. I was just going for something different. When you hear "silence", you think of a quiet beach, or the p in pneumatics. I was going for a different angle....
thanks for the input!
I get what you're doing, I just wasn't sure how "literal" you wanted regarding the feeling/theme of the photo. If someone said to me, in one word, tell me what the feeling of this photo is, I would say fear.
How outside the box do people go with these themes? Or do people stay fairly linear?
Her eyes don't really look scared, but I have to say it's pretty creepy.
I freaked out when i saw this, it almost looked like the girl i have tied up but its not. :) Just kidding...( please nobody quote this) I like it, maybe instead of duct tape her mouth could be sewn shut.
ha, I don't think my sister would go for that.
theres lots of videos of holloween makeup and different cool makeup and i bet you could do a sewn kind of look
