Challenge 

Learning to master the use of graphic elements can add a powerful punch to your images. 

Graphic elements (lines and shapes) are evident in everything around us. As photographers, we must train ourselves to see through the obvious to find the extraordinary.  

Assignment:  Go to a new location ignore  what the subject "physically" is. Photograph it looking only for graphic elements that  TELL THE STORY of what it is. Keep in mind your use of space, balance and assigned weight within in the scene.

Entries must be uploaded by Wednesday August 16, 2017  11:59pm
