The existential photographer - reveal yourself
Challenge has finished
Without a meaning the photos are nothing but pixels. The photographer projects himself/herself in the picture to create a meaning. The viewers again create a meaning through their own lenses of prejudice, judgement and memory. In the end what we find that existence of a photo is always particular, unique and individual. So show us a photo that tells a story about you as a photographer - literally. You should be a part of the picture (or your shadow or any body part). Direct self-portraits are not encouraged but it is upto you to be creative and change a self-portrait to a story. Add a heading and a brief description about yourself.

I still struggle with this aspect of macro photography: how to keep my body, my shadow, my long hair, out of the photo? This miniature flower, growing lonely on a dirty roadside in South Africa, was a challenge, and I twisted and contorted trying to get at a good level but still hold steady. And here, the best photo of all the attempts: sharp and in focus, good lighting, good colours . . . aaaaaand my foot in the background. Just great. :| I've left that roadside flower long behind but its lesson remains: always be conscious of whether or not my feet are in frame!
