In this photo series project, we invite photographers to freeze moments in time that are transient, elusive, and often overlooked. The goal is to capture the beauty, emotions, and stories hidden within brief flashes of existence.
- Narrative: Seek out and explore scenes or subjects that exist for only a brief moment. Each photograph should tell a story or evoke a feeling. Consider the emotions, memories, or thoughts the subject may evoke in viewers.
- Perspective: Experiment with different angles, lighting, and composition techniques to highlight the uniqueness of your chosen subject. Don't be afraid to get up close or use abstract approaches to capture these moments.
- Color and Monochrome: You can work in color or black-and-white, depending on what suits the subject matter and your artistic vision.
- Consistency: Maintain a consistent style and theme throughout your photo series to create a cohesive body of work.
- Title and Description: Each photo should be accompanied by a title and a brief description that provides context or insight into the subject's significance.
- Medium: You are free to use digital or film photography, but ensure your final submissions are high-quality and original images.
