Challenge #05: Take a Picture That . . . | Click To Read More . . .

Hi! I'm Jon Gunzel and Welcome to your next challenge!

Today your challenge is to take a picture of something amazing.  There is one small catch.  The picture must tell some kind of story. 

Ok, so what defines amazing?  You do.  If it's amazing to you, it works for this challenge.  This might take a little effort, going outside or to a new location but spend some time observing your world and find something in it that amazes you.  If you can't find anything that seems amazing, you can apply this little trick.  Look around your area and find something that is NOT amazing.  Repeat this exercise over and over again until you notice a change in your thinking. 

Ok now that you have something amazing, take a picture of it that tells a story.  It doesn’t have to be some modern day work of art, any snapshot on any camera will do and you have full creative license here to tell the story however you want, but the image should have some message or story in it.

I'll give you a few examples.  A man walking home with his groceries.  A bird taking a bath.  Snow falling on a car.  A spider spinning a web.  Get the idea? 

If you haven't guessed, this isn't so much about the photography as it is about getting you observing and interacting with the world around you.  Have fun with it.  You attitude toward any challenge is a HUGE part of how much fun it is. 

Ok, so that's the challenge today:  Take a picture of something amazing and make sure the picture tells a story. If you feel like sharing, feel free to post it in the Facebook group so we can all enjoy it?

Keep up the great work and we'll see you again tomorrow in the next challenge!
