For this week’s photo challenge you will research and photograph a specific phobia.
Step 1: Research and find a phobia from http://phobialist.com/
Step 2: Plan out your shot. You will shoot this one a little differently, begin with the end in mind. Plan it out in your mind. Where will you shoot it? What props will you need to arrange for/purchase? Will you need to get your prop from Goodwill or the Dollar Tree?
What objects will you need to bring in from home?
Step 3: Take several pictures, keep shooting until you have a photo you really love, then take another just for safety sake, throughout the shooting process, ask yourself how the photo reflects the specific phobia you have chosen.DO NOT TURN IN BLURRY PHOTOS! IF YOUR PHOTOS ARE BLURRY, SHOOT AGAIN UNTIL THEY ARE ‘TACK SHARP.’
Step 4: Photoshop the image! Almost all images need a little adjusting in photoshop. Whether its adjusting the levels of white, grey or black, or using brightness contrast, or adjusting color balance. ALL PHOTOS NEED SOME PHOTOSHOP!!!
Step5: Find a font from http://dafont.com that fits the look of the phobia you have chosen. Download the font to your F: drive. I will need to install it for you
Step6: Photoshop the phobia onto your photo. Do it in a place that seems to fit in with the composition of your photograph, don’t just slap it down everywhere.
Step7: Be proud of the work you did. If you are not proud, SHOOT AGAIN…
