Emotion: Weekly Photography Challenge

Emotion: Weekly Photography Challenge


Image by Amanda Tipton

This week your photography challenge is to shoot and share an image on the theme of ’emotion’. The suggestion was made by a number of our readers on our facebook page – thanks everyone!

Feel free to interpret the theme in any way that you like. You might like to shoot a portrait that shows someone experiencing an emotion (happiness, sadness, anger etc) or you might choose to shoot something that makes those who view it feel some kind of emotion…. or you might have another idea – anything goes.

Once you’ve taken your ‘Emotion’ Photos – choose your best 1-2, upload them to your favourite photo sharing site either share a link to them even better – embed them in the comments using the our new tool to do so.

If you tag your photos on Flickr, Twitter or other sites with Tagging tag them as #DPSEMOTION to help others find them. Linking back to this page might also help others know what you’re doing so that they can share in the fun.

Also – don’t forget to check out some of the great shots posted in last weeks Emotion challenge – there were some great shots submitted.

    I spent most of the morning at the Oklahoma City Bombing Memorial earlier this week, taking pictures for the Geometric Shapes assignment. It is so hard to fathom the terror and pain that this evil act produced for all its victims, our city and state. As I was walking back to my car, I passed this statue which stands directly across the street from where the Murrah Federal Building once stood, outside a Catholic Church. This says it all.

    After spending most of the morning at the Oklahoma City Bombing Memorial this week, and reflecting on the unspeakable act of brutality carried out on the victims of that event, I left and was walking back to my car. I passed by this statue which is at a Catholic Church, across the street from where the Murrah Federal Building once stood.

    I spent most of the morning Monday at the Oklahoma City Bombing Memorial where the Murrah Federal Building used to be. After reflecting on the insane killing that went on there in April 1995, I was walking back to my car and passed this statue at the Catholic Church across the street from the Memorial site.[eimg link='http://www.flickr.com/photos/jloper/5548391547/' title='Jesus Wept' url='http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5011/5548391547_6dea9bfe53_z.jpg']

    Weariness. This motorcycle taxi driver was taking a break on a quiet back street off one of the main tourist areas in Bangkok. When I chatted with him he said he was very tired because he worked 12 hours a day for 20 days in a row to be able to support his family.

    Nikon D90 with the 35mm f1.8 prime lens.

    I thought this photo DOES represent “emotion”. Take a look at the face of my husband’s “third” child. I am trying to decide what is running through his mind…”I wish Mom would turn off the light so I can go back to sleep” OR “Is she leaving again?” Help me decide what you think Titan is saying. Thanks again

    I snapped this the other day while getting a pizza with some friends in Buenos Aires, Argentina. A child nearby was getting frustrated while trying to learn how to ride a tricycle. Only afterwards did I really notice the bicycle and motorcycle around him. I think they add an interesting "what might be to come" element to the photo.

  • Erik Kerstenbeck March 12, 2011 07:17 am

    Here are a few emotions I tried to catch

    Excitement http://t.co/d9bZ6UR

    Fierce! http://t.co/XuU5iXB

  • Scott C March 12, 2011 07:14 am

    I'm not sure if "Effort" or "Struggle" is an emotion, but the subtle look on this little chap's face definitley shows a feeling - a feeling that eventually prevailed...


  • Michael Mark March 12, 2011 07:10 am

    Uhm... Disgust?

  • Miguel Romero March 12, 2011 07:08 am

    That is a subjet that I did some time ago :) ... It's a great challenge idea!
