Team-Up Thursday: Week Thirty-Two (SELECTIVE FOCUS)
SELECTIVE FOCUS was a fun theme for me -- I can't wait to see what other pairs created! I love that Melody chose the less obvious shot here. Rather than focus on V, she left her in the background to focus on the fence. Mine is a bit more straightforward, but I do like how only one wooden flower is left for the viewer. This is a great theme for being a bit more creative, so I'll have to keep it in mind whenever I'm shooting.
Next week, we'll be tackling WORK for our theme. I'm sure everyone is all too familiar with that concept.
In other news, I mentioned last week that Melody and I were wanting to do another group theme. We have only done one: way back in February, we challenged everyone to do a SELF-PORTRAIT diptych. It was a ton of fun, and it was great to have everyone participating with the same theme.
Fast forward to September and we're finally ready for another group challenge. This one requires a bit more preparation, so we're giving you three weeks. For the week of September 23rd, we're all going to go FLYING! Let me be more specific: Jan Von Holleben's "Dreams of Flying" is a wonderful series of photographs of people flying...without leaving the ground.
Check out this link and be sure to watch the series of photos as well as the Coldplay video lower down in the post. Then get out your ladders (or scout out a place you can take a photo from above) and get those creative juices flowing.
Don't worry, if you and your partner want to do your own theme, please don't feel pressured -- it's all good.
