Your Challenge if you choose to accept it is to produce your Interpretation of a piece of Art, produced by your favourite or chosen Artists.
My interpretation of a Salvador Dali Photograph.
I chose Salvador Dali because of his expansive artistic repertoire including film, sculpture and photography. I especially like his unorthodox use of distortion, not conforming to rules, traditions, or modes of conduct: an unorthodox ideology.
Definition of Art
In its broadest sense, art is a form of communication. It means whatever the artist intends it to mean and this meaning is shaped by the materials, techniques, and forms it makes use of, as well as the ideas and feelings it creates in its viewers. Art is an act of expressing feelings, thoughts and observations. This includes your photography.
Choose the style of photography that best portrays the Artist’s style, from your perspective. You may choose to work straight from the camera, adding filters and/or in camera editing. However, if you like post production or fancy having a dabble then go for it. Post processing is just as important as capturing the image, and shouldn’t be looked down upon as a lesser art form.
By the way there are plenty of free editing programs if you fancy having a dabble. You can learn a lot just by playing with a copy of your image. Please make sure you use a copy.
Don’t fret if you’re thinking HELP. If you’re thinking “I don’t know who I like,” then maybe check out artists who produce Art that leans toward your style of image by using a search engine. Your image source can be from sculpture, canvas and drawings or other photographers work’ and I’m sure most of you will come up with other great ideas.
How to Post
So, once you have decided who and what you intend to portray with your camera art, post a brief description, as I did above, of who the Artist is and why you like their work.
As always remember to have fun and be creative. Out of the box interpretations are encouraged
The friendly community guidelines are pretty simple:
- Take a new photo for the current weekly theme, not something from your back catalog or someone else’s image.
- Post your photo each week to our active communities on Facebook or Flickr (or both). Tag the photo: #2019photochallenge #photochallenge #tempusaura
- Don’t leave home without your camera. Participating in the 2019 Trevor Carpenter Photo Challenge is fun and easy.
- Post your photo during the week of Sunday 18th August to Saturday 24th August.
- Please remember to comment on at least FIVE photo submissions this week, by answering the question “why?” in your comments. In other words, “why do I like (or not like) this photo? or “why did this photo catch my eye?”
