This week the challenge is all about masks.
Masks are a hot topic these days. Wearing them, arguing about them, raging about them – they bring up emotion.
But this week’s challenge is simple. Take portraits of people with their masks on. You can make it as simple as you want – self-portraits in the mirror, portraits of your family who is living with you, if you are not in a place that has you quarantined, take portraits of people wearing their masks while they are out and about, they can even be random strangers.
To make the challenge more interesting, and this is totally for extra credit, do side by side portraits – one with the person without a mask and one with the person wearing their mask.
Read through the Learning To See description to make sure you get why and how you are doing the challenge. Make sure that the composition of your images are 100% about the challenge.
Always experiment with variations on the weekly theme within the subjects of the challenge – composition, contrast, shape, texture, colors, light, shadow, perspective, framing …
