Disturbing & Intense - Visually agitate & provoke the viewers
Challenge series hosted by Stomie. Challenges start on Tuesdays.
Looking for high visual & emotional impact combined with high image quality, composition & demonstrated technique. Not necessarily beautiful or pretty, but emotionally moving, disturbing & with intensity & drama. The objective is to visually incite viewers to explore their own reactions & perhaps question their own values. For the Photographer's side of the process, this series looks to stimulate careful thought & consideration & maybe some planning to be applied in creating an image rather than shooting a zillion pics @ 120,000 ISO & 12 fps & picking a lucky keeper.
