Conceptual Photography II
Challenge has finished
First you decide on a concept or idea for your photograph, then you take a photograph that expresses that concept. The goal of conceptual photography is to make your idea or concept obvious - even though precisely *what* your concept is can be clear or ambiguous. A common conceptual photograph is a wedding ring placed in the middle of an open book, casting a shadow in the shape of a heart that expresses the love that we hope can be found in marriage. A photo of scissors cutting a paper heart in half can express heartbrokenness. But please don't use these ideas, come up with your own. Humor and cleverness in your concept is generally desired. Conceptual photographers include Eugène Atget, Man Ray, Cindy Sherman, Irving Penn, and Andreas Gursky.
