2013 Challenge, Week 22: Cliche

Ok, so this week I’m suggesting that you try for something that might be a little provocative, if you will. I’m not talking about risqué, but possibly off-putting. What? Shoot the overdone. The typical pose. The too-much-HDR. The selfie-foodie.

Well, in our little world of online photography, we’ve all seen some photos (or made them ourselves) that have been done, and done, and done, over and over and over again. At this point, they’re so overdone, that they’ve become kinda cliche.

Of course, there’s more traditional interpretations of the theme: cliche, and you’re free to create images of that as well. Just get out there and push your skill level to the next level!

Amazing. It's that good.

Remember to create a new photo for this week’s theme. And don’t be concerned if you fall behind, just shoot whatever week’s theme we’re on. Don’t forget to tag accordingly, and share your work with us all at our Google+ Community, Facebook Page, or Flickr Group.

About Steve Troletti

I'm a Location Scout, Editorial, Nature, Wildlife and Environmental Photographer based in Malibu, California. I specialize in Nature and Urban Nature photography including Infrared Landscapes. The Bulk of my work takes place in the Los Angeles, California area, Greater Montreal Region, Canada, Switzerland, France and Varese in Northern Italy. Ethical wildlife photography is the main priority and focus of my work. A minimum disturbance of the animals, their habitat and the environment is my top priority. This applies as much to total wilderness areas as it does to urban nature environments. Ongoing education of environmental issues and building awareness for the protection of wildlife and wilderness areas around the world is what drives me to document the beauty that surrounds us.
