If the truth be told I’d be more than happy to dress in black t-shirts and blue jeans everyday. Clothes shopping would be much easier, cartoon characters have the right idea.
This week’s photography challenge is all about photographing clothes but in a way that they tell a story about the owner. It could be a pair of pants on a bathroom floor or that random sock that didn’t quite make the washing basket (but I swear it did).
It could be a detail of a particularly fine stitch or perhaps a mystery stain that just won’t go away.
Try creating a series of images and put them together as a collage. For my example images I used groom preparation images from our wedding photography archive.
This weekly photo challenge is designed to complement our photography basics section the London Mums website. Each week we will set a different theme and your homework is to go out and photograph a collection of images related to that theme.
You can start this challenge whenever you like and do the different themes in any order you see fit. Think of these challenges as a photography workout. Don’t just do them once and not revisit them. If you do start these challenges as you begin our online basics classes then in a few months why not revisit older challenges to see how much better a photographer you have become.
Also try and think outside the box as much as possible. Photography is as much about creative interpretation as it is about technical prowess.
