“You don’t make a photograph just with a camera. You bring to the act of photography all the pictures you have seen, the books you have read, the music you have heard, the people you have loved.” ― Ansel Adams

When somebody loves me

But the scene in Toy Story 3 where Jessie sings her song and we see her ‘playing’ with her owner in better times….well, lets just say that image is permanently imprinted on my brain.

Make it Seem

This latest photo challenge, ‘make it seem…’, had me struggling from the get go which is why its taken me so long to post a response.  Like Kristina, I really enjoy these challenges.

Make it seem – a new challenge

It’s my turn to present the next photo challenge. I have choose one by Lucas Fogia called “Make it seem…“. This is a photographic challenge where you are supposed to make four different toy- pictures. This is what you should do:

  1. Make a photograph of something that is supposed to be happy, and you should make it seem sad.

  2. Make a photograph of something that is supposed to be sad , and make it seem beautiful.

  3. Make a photograph of something that is normal and make it seem shocking

  4. Make a photograph of something that you want the world to know about and make it urgent.

The “rules” for this challenge are the same as always 🙂  We will work with the challenge for about two weeks and then we, at least Shelly and I, will present our results hear on Stuck in Plastic. Good luck and I hope you will join us in this latest challenge.
