52 Week Photography Challenge Week #3
52 WEEK PHOTOGRAPHY CHALLENGE WEEK #3
After completing my challenge for week #2, I moved on to week 3. It says to when this category comes up, we really have room to express ourselves. We can interpret the assignment literally or figuratively. Unlike the other two categories that are more focused, the main focus of this category is to let our creativity shine.
Our junior photographer who is 14 years old this year is also challenging himself to improve his photography through this 52 Week Photography challenge. Having just moved to Adelaide, the challenge has also helped him to explore his new home through his eyes and capturing the moments. Click HERE to follow his journey.
WEEK 3 (Artistic): Red Shoot whatever inspires you. Red should be the focus of the image. Don’t be afraid to be creative.
I took this picture using my iPhone while I was in Lijiang last November. My camera called it quits with me on the 5th day I was there so I had to use my iPhone to take pictures for the rest of the trip. It was very frustrating because Lijiang in China is such a beautiful place and I couldn’t capture the place with my usual travel camera Sony DSLR Nex 5F.
On the day before we left Lijiang to come back to Singapore, we went to the local market to buy the local groceries. I chanced upon huge sacks of dried red chilis and had to take them because they were so beautiful. These little red chilies look so innocent but I am sure they will add fireworks to whichever food they are used to cook with. I must confess, this is the most satisfying iPhone picture taken during my trip to Lijiang China.
