Once again, this Year’s themes are meant to challenge you as a photographer by means of Storytelling (taking a prompt and turning it into a photo story), Compositional Eye (using rules of composition) and Inspiration (using a simple inspiration as creatively as you can).
Hope you take on this challenge as it is meant and have fun with it.
Conwy Camera Club – Lionel Bloodworth Creative Challenge Trophy
Creative photography is an extension of conventional everyday photography into creative art. Its purpose is to stimulate creative thoughts and to encourage experimentation with new ideas going beyond a simple ‘everyday’ photograph.
The final result must be based on the photographer’s intentional work by photographing a subject in a way that most people would not normally see; demonstrating a level of intentional artistic impression.
Ideally this would include the use of creative techniques with the camera equipment, rather than with just computer and software manipulation. These various techniques may include one or more of the following considerations to produce a ‘creative photograph’.
Viewing the subject from an unusual or interesting angle, a change in normal perspective, the use of extremely slow or fast shutter speeds, creating a conceptual or abstract image, intentional camera movement, etc.
Otherwise a creative photograph may be produced by the careful arrangement of the subject material by the photographer. This could be as simple as linking two or more subjects not usually seen or associated together or the use of various ‘trick’ photography techniques.
The description of a photograph as creative becomes more justified as the level of input from the photographer increases.
