Day Sixteen: The Eye of The Beholder

Saturday, February 16th: Beauty

Our ideas of beauty are cultural, they exist in the eye of the beholder. Today find a way to make images that sing with their beauty and also make some that push you away with disgust. Then, I challenge you to switch those two - make beautiful photographs of that which makes you cringe and ugly shots of beautiful items.  Is either of those two things harder? Does it change your ideas about the subjects? 

If you've just joined us, February is a 28 day creativity challenge with a new "prompt" each day to get you thinking in new ways. The goal is to just have fun, don't try to control too much, feel free to use a cell phone or any camera that's easy for you. Don't worry about the end results. With each prompt you can take it literally or not, you can wing it, google it, ask for people's opinions...whatever you want to do is perfect. Bottom line - it's supposed to be fun, there are no right or wrongs.
