52-Week Photo Challenge: Week 7

52-Week Photography Challenge: Week 752-Week Photo Challenge: Week 7 | Portrait: Faceless

“WEEK 7: Portrait: Faceless: Tell someone’s story without showing their face.”

I just wanted to start this week’s 52-Week Photo Challenge: Week 7 by saying that first: it’s by far the most difficult one yet. And second; I’ve been doing this challenge wrong on purpose.

And what I mean by this is that this challenge is meant for making that ONE photo that represents what the challenge is about that week. And I upload many, not just one. But I do that because I feel short by just uploading one. I don’t want to limit myself creatively. So if one week I just make 1 photo work, then I only upload that one. If I like 50, then 50. (Hard, but it’s a hypothetical).

“WEEK 6: Artistic: Candy: Your artistic interpretation this week should be inspired by something sweet. Therefore, a great chance to play with macro photography.”

So problem number 1: I don’t have a macro lens. And my 50mm will definitely not focus near enough. So let’s just keep this week’s 52-Week Photo Challenge: Week 6 to artistic and candy and sweet.

Since I don’t have a macro lens to play with, and the main subject is artistic. I didn’t want to take random pictures of something sweet. And it was really hard coming up with an artistic approach to it. Furthermore, in all of the Artistic section of this challenge, you can take the theme literally or figuratively. And I chose the later.

So here is my “artistic” take on candy = the summer skies. Which by the colors and the clouds look like cotton candy!

Featuring this week’s 52-Week Photo Challenge: Week 4… drums… My boyfriend!

I hereby officially introduce you to my snow-skinned, messy haired, hazel eyed and full of freckles partner in crime; Nico. In the background cool walls of Gracia, again.

It’s perfect for photos! And you know who’s not perfect for photos? My boyfriend. He’s so impatient and can’t stay put. It was hard work Y’all. But I did the best that I could.
