black and white cat tuxedo curious

 

To round off this month, this week’s prompt is CURIOUS! As you can see in the photo above, Pepper the Cat is a very curious kitty! Isn’t it interesting how much that little tilt of the head can convey your subject’s curiosity?

One things most photographers and photograph lovers have in common is a curiosity about the world around them, the past, the future and everything in between. Don’t believe that nonsense about curiosity killing the cat, get out there and see what strikes your fancy and draws you in. It could be something you find strange or unusual or simply something you’re eager to know more about or learn!

Show us someone being curious or just a bit of something to whet our own curiosity about your subject. Or even just something that you find plain curious… we’re curious to see what you’re curious about. Try saying that eight times fast!

Today is President’s Day here in the US, and appropriately, today’s prompt is a personality trait many leaders possess, an ability to be – FEARLESS.

Fearlessness is what enables you to take risks and be willing to make mistakes – which often results in great learning and boundless opportunities.

So this week, I encourage you to be fearless! Take a shot you’ve never dared to before – whether it’s the subject, technique or location that seems risky. Don’t be afraid to make a mistake. We all make them. Take a risk and try something new.

Maybe take that selfie that you didn’t take for last week’s prompt, or show us someone in your life that embodies fearlessness to you. Share a pic you’ve been too nervous to post before, or try something different than what you usually do – go for a moody or dramatic shot, try a black & white, or something intimate or personal – the options are endless. Naturally, fearless will look different for each of us.

I can’t wait to see your fearlessness shine through in the #wpmyview feed!

Shelly WaldmanLifestyle Editorial and Advertising Photographer Los Angeles and San Francisco

With Valentine’s coming this week, I thought we’d focus on love. Now the challenge is not to find love or heart shape objects, but rather self love. This week is all about the self portrait.

I can hear you moaning. The reason I picked this for the challenge is for us to feel loved and give love we must first love ourselves, hence be our own Valentine. I was recently photographing corporate headshots and almost every woman was self conscious of something: her skin, her hair, her weight, her whole self being. The reality is you are perfect today. You are beautiful inside and out and you can continue to refine yourself in the future.

So I challenge you this week, to photograph yourself. Use reflections, the reverse facing camera on your phone, a self timer or even have someone else photograph you. Be silly, be serious, be happy, but most of all be brave and get in front of the lens. To get us started our selfie challenge, you’ll note that above are two portraits of me. Yes, I got in front of the lens. Left image shot by Shereen Reber and the right image photographed by Ning Wong.

I can’t wait to see your faces in the #wpmyview feed.

girls making crepesThis week’s prompt is in the kitchen. The kitchen is probably the second most used section of your home and if you work from home, you frequent it way more often than most. This week photograph a meal you’re making, the ingredients, the way you have your pots or plates stacked, an activity at the kitchen table, or a bowl of fruit on the counter.

Looking forward to seeing what’s cooking in your kitchen this week.
