Photographer in the Picture: Weekly Photography Challenge

0Comments

John Howell, an Indianapolis newsboy, makes $.75 some days. Begins at 6 a.m., Sundays. (Lives at 215 W. Michigan St.)  (LOC)Today while surfing on Flickr I came across this old classic photo from 1908. It was in the Library of Congress Flickr account in their ‘photographer in the picture‘ set and not only captures an Indianapolis street scene but also the photographer in the act of taking the shot – or at least his shadow.

The shadow itself tells a story of the moment the photo was taken – the size of the camera, the remote shutter release, the photographers (Lewis Wickes Hine) outfit (hat and coat). Something about it grabbed me so I thought perhaps this weeks photographic challenge should be – ‘photographer in the picture’.

Your challenge this week is to take and share a photo with you the photographer somehow in the frame.

There are a variety of ways you might want to do this ranging from a full self portrait – to something a little more subtle – perhaps capturing your shadow, perhaps your reflection, perhaps a part of your body… I’ll leave it up to you as to how you do it – but do let your creative juices get going!

Note: while we don’t mind you posting previous images that you’ve taken that fit this topic – the real point of these ‘challenges’ is to inspire you to go out and take NEW photos. So perhaps instead of just trawling through your old photos to find one that fits – grab that camera and go use it too!

If you’re looking for some inspiration – do check out our Self Portraiture resource.

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

If you tag your photos on Flickr, Instagram, Twitter or other sites with Tagging tag them as #DPSPHOTOGRAPHERINPIC 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 Smile challenge where there were some great shots submitted.

    Here is one of my self portraits. It wasn't take long ago, perhaps a week ago, but I have done many and continue to exploring self portraiture as a mode of self expression.

    This has got to be the best picture I have ever come across with regards to having the photographer in the picture!

    Pity it wasn't taken by me :( but I do think that Felix Gosher needs a pat on the back for his creativity here. I think most of you will agree with me.

    I have two pictures to contribute to this weeks challenge. My apologies for the lighting, but we were in the basement at 7:30 in the evening and if I turned anymore lights on the shadow would be non-existent. Because the lighting was so poor, I couldn't get my camera to focus properly either. Maybe someone can offer a suggestion for that. I know, practice, practice, practice....LOL!!!

    As a mom, one of the most important things to me is my kids, whom I see my self reflected in often. Thus, when I wanted to take a "Self Portrait" it seemed important to have my children be the focus of the picture.

    Hi,

    Here is my entry to the self portrait theme. This was just two shots, one of me with a soft box to the right (using just the modelling light to enable a long exposure), and one reflector to the right. I them moved my head to various positions during exposure and picked the one I thought worked best. I positioned the bottle on a stool and just moved the same lighting set up inwards until I had the catch lights were I wanted them on the glass. Both shots were combined in Photoshop.

    Equipment was Canon 7D, 18-55 mm, manual f11, auto speed, ASA 200, wireless remote.

    Thanks,

    Ian[eimg link='http://www.flickr.com/photos/70075549@N02/6365961759/' title='Self Portrait Number 2' url='http://farm7.staticflickr.com/6239/6365961759_7d265cce7b_z.jpg']

    Someone once mentioned to me that I never get my photo taken, so now my "signature shot" is a photo of my shadow, or reflection in a window. One of my favorites is to get my shadow and other photographers I may be with.

    I may be biased, but this is one of my favorite photographers.
