monca Photography Challenge – October 21 to 25, 2020
monca’s photo challenge is inspired by Ann Mitchell, the daughter of local artist, Dolores Mitchell. Ann is a retired photography and digital media professor of 22 years and now a full-time artist.
Ann challenges us to find a new perspective in photography. Most of us tend to see the world from two heights – standing and sitting, but as kids we looked up at the world while sprawled on the floor. This simple change of viewpoint can make a dramatic difference in your images. From this position try shooting your object from no more than two to four inches from a wall, a tree, a tabletop, water in a sink, or other surfaces and watch your familiar world turn to something different – even strange, eye-catching.
Final twist to the challenge is to make it about the art of teaching. Participants are asked to photograph the process of learning (a mother homeschooling her children, a child teaching your dog/cat a trick, a friend teaching you how to make a pumpkin pie) from a low position (a child’s height) with your object no more than two to four inches from a wall, a tree, a tabletop, water in a sink, or other surfaces.
Photos sent to firstname.lastname@example.org will be shared on monca’s social media in a photo album with all other submissions. Entries must be in by Sunday, 12 Midnight, on October 25th.
