Photograph a Kiss
To be shot and submitted between 1 – 31 October 2016 , submission deadline is 31 October 2016 23:59 UK Time.
A kiss – one of the most intimate interactions between two persons yet it exists in so many forms. A kiss can be innocent, raw and passionate, full of love or just a way to say “hello”, part of a ceremony or raunchy. Just think about how it is used in different cultures and it can even save lives. A kiss can be a little gesture that sometimes means a lot or a force that shakes your world.
This month, your challenge is to capture the beauty of this moment – without being cheesy! You can ask someone to kiss for you, set up a happening with some friends or use a street photography approach. The most important thing is to capture an emotion so the viewer can feel it.
The winner of this Challenge is Funke Adenuga:
This is a picture of my friend and her husband at a 50th birthday party which took place on Saturday 29th October. I met her in 2015 and she has given me so much support and encouragement with my photograph. At the party, she asked me to take a picture of her and her husband but when I looked through my view finder, they looked like soldiers. So I said to her… give him a kiss..!
Comment: The long lens and structured background are the perfect stage for this fantastic moment. The cinematic backlight is the icing on the cake and reminded us of a still shot from a movie.
