  • [twitter]Used slow shutter speed, layering to create six word story http://flic.kr/p/9FSfvk [/twitter]\n\nEasy to take a snapshot of this interesting photo gallery. But more went in to it, wanted to explore perhaps creating a scene ot story. With camera knowledge, I forced a slow exposure to make cars blur, and thought the arrangement of people made for layers. In post (I tossed 4 that did not work) I decided to make this a six word story.\n\nhttp://www.flickr.com/photos/cogdog/5702001885\n

  • 27. “It has changed me more as a father than it has as aphotographer. There are lots of difficult things yougo through as the parent of special needs child. Yetto see his photo showcased prominently onsomething I care deeply about, such as Flickr, and tosee him being praised by my friends and colleaguesgives me a sense of pride for my son. Also his imageshas been used for campaigns and posters for Autism.This photo has produced some redemptive andendearing qualities since I posted it online.”Kris Krug from “Story of a Portrait from flickr Homepage”(http://madaboutportraits.blogspot.com/2011/02/story-of-portrait-from-flickr-homepage.html) cc licensed ( BY ) flickr photo by kk: http://www.flickr.com/photos/kk/14443265/

  • 39. “I remember walking around campus that day thinking about preparedness,looking for preparedness, wondering what preparedness was. No luck.That evening, though, I was thinking about how Leatherman’s were an example ofpreparedness, and then I remembered an old pocketknife my grandfather hadgiven me.I tried to think of how I could make it interesting. It needed… atmosphere. Itneeded… lighting. But just shooting it with a flash turned out bland, so I figuredout how to get the flash focused on a small area of the scene (it’s called a snoot).It’s clear, I think, that absent the constraint of needing to take a certain kind ofpicture that night, I probably wouldn’t have ever headed down the path whichresulted in the picture, nor would I have gained further practice in photography.”Galagon Wagon, (http://galagonwagon.com/2011/02/the-daily-shoot-and-creativity/) cc licensed ( BY NC ) flickr photo by Galagon Wagon: http://flickr.com/photos/galagonwagon/5429505007/

  • 41. “Despite knowing that photographing water isdifficult, I walked around our campus a0er schoollooking for it; I should have been looking for liquids.Then I saw it.Beautiful, dense, thick buckets of mud. A blend ofearth and water and gas and everything mushedtogether. I have always loved mud, so with greatpleasure I snapped a round of shots. I am glad I didn’tgo with a more traditional glistening form of liquid,and I tried something a bit different.”Jabiz Raisdana, (http://intrepidflame.blogspot.com/2011/01/state-of-matter.html) cc licensed ( BY NC ) flickr photo by Intrepid Flame: http://flickr.com/photos/intrepidflame/5348740810/

  • 43. “The assignment’s taken me on some prettyunexpected adventures. Almost everyday I’vestarted with a completely different idea (or noidea) of what I was going to photograph, thenstumbled upon something extraordinary. It’sforced me to think about things in new ways andit’s shown me that sometimes it’s easier to makeart when you take a more hands-on approach anddon’t overthink it.”Matt Martin, (http://blog.electrovert.net/?p=69) cc licensed ( BY NC ) flickr photo by electrovert: http://flickr.com/photos/58873944@N07/5417153345/
