I believe any of you can start a thread called "April Photo Essay Posting Thread" ... ;-)

And who ever ended up winning the February Photo Essay side challenge?

Good ideas, guys.

1. Let's rename this thread Discussion and Previews for April Photo Essay Challenge

2. Let's make it a requirement that all photo essays start as a DPC thumbnail, regardless of where they end up. Comments can be collected there.


So, (er, um) it's May already. Next step?
:)

Mine's ready. Except for the title. Oh, I have one. It fits and is accurate, but it is so irreverent.
And oh dear, does it not do this photo essay justice.
What's a girl to do. (Where's Ann Landers when one needs her.)

If you're not using it, can you send it over here?

Twice I started with colourful images of humans or animals, and twice I ended up with inanimate harsh B&W abstracts. If the next one ends up there, I'll be forced to buy a Nikon as it must be the camera's fault..


Funny you mentioned this color vs B&W thing Herman!
I decided to post a color photo cycle to challenge myself a bit and stray from B&W - at least it's a good experiment unless one is color blind.

Now you gave me an idea for a title. Why not "colorful humans" or, to stay away from metaphor and more to the point "humans in color" (and perhaps squeeze an animal or two)


Soooo... Guess what happened? I started to get my nice elephants into a folder for consideration, but after 15 minutes I was busy collating close to b&w moonshots. Went through 2009 to 2013 images, [+- 100 000] and NOW I read this reply instruction order...

And me with no tags on any of my images. Why didn't you phone to tell me? Hehe.

ah, hopes (pronounced hopeeze) may be a new disease... as for colour I have an old Nikon p and s that does better black and white than any of my conversions.

Mariuca, did you mean that - "squeeze and animal or two"? I'm sure in the gentlest of ways...

Glad we continue - I will participate even if I produce only a partial gathering of images.
Posting on May 1?

I'm in. So I hope it hasn't died of neglect. It's interesting to see what people create to post here.
04/24/2014 04:23:30 AM · #13
I had one ready last month, which i can submit.
04/24/2014 12:04:41 AM · #14
I've got one that just needs a bit of polishing and it should be ready by the end of the month.
This is a lot of fun.
04/23/2014 08:02:23 PM · #15
I'm still in
04/23/2014 04:18:44 PM · #16
Is this still on? Doesn't seem to be much interest.

It's a blog.

It's also in my portfolio.
Any & all comments welcome.

I think using a blog format makes that plain. I would have done it that way if I weren't so lazy busy.

I enjoyed reading the February photoessays by Paul and Don. That influenced my decision to write something in blog format. I'm hoping you don't compare mine to theirs but I thought it would be fun to give it a try. My previous two photo essay attempts were more galleries of images with limited writing. Please feel free to critique what I've offered. Agree or not, I love to hear different ideas.

I am another one thinking of posting an illustrated blog here. As I read ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', '/') + 1) . ' insteps blog, I felt an impulse to let the words change the way I saw the pictures. I felt another impulse to add my own words, sometimes in disagreement. That felt a little presumptuous. It holds me back from commenting.

Is the combination of words & pictures better if it's more like a storybook? Entertaining, interesting, but not sparking any independent outside-the-story thoughts in the viewer? I'm wondering how I find that fine line between 'blog' and 'story.' And if I want the viewer to feel free to disagree with me, or add their comments to mine, how do I make that plain?

I put this together for March but April will do just fine.

With that in mind, I'll throw my depersonalization disorder photography into the pot for April essay ' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/115000-119999/119419/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1107951.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/115000-119999/119419/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1107951.jpg', '/') + 1) .

I too, with the little time that I have, could not truly give justice to the entries in writing. Just revel in their viewing.
04/01/2014 11:29:30 PM · #25
I never got around to commenting on all the Februaries... Truly they were easier to ponder than to pontificate upon.
