Assignment Four:  FINALE

Fairytales, Folklore and Mythology


The popularity of fairytales and folklore is because they are retold again and again with new persepctive and we want to see you give an old story a new twist!  And we threw in Greek Mythology for the heck of it!  LOL!  Below are a few links to lists of fairytale/folk stories and Mythology.  We ask that you pick one of the stories from these links and retell it with your photos, even better if you add your own unique elements to it.


LIST OF FAIRYTALES/FOLKLORE

STORIES AND INFO ON GREEK MYTHOLOGY



Here are a couple videos to inspire you.  The two new Snow White movies that will both premiere in 2012 are retelling the famous tale with completely different but totally interesting angles.


Snow White and the Huntsman


Mirror, Mirror




Present SEVEN photos - since your photos are to be inspired by a story, your photos should follow a story format of some type


  • ONE photo should be a portrait or headshot of your main character, that means a pic of your character from shoulders up.
  • The rest of the pics are up to you and your creativity


 

Read Carefully


  • When you post your photos, please tell us which story you chose and tell us a little about it
  • EDITING ALLOWED.  We decided that to accomodate everyone, we are allowing editing in this last round because we have many talented photo editors in our competition.  New Shutterbugs Cycles will clarify that there will be no editing, as Shutterbugs is specifically about photography and not photo manipulation.  Other future contests not under the Shutterbugs name, will encourage photo editing and such.  With that said, our judges will probably favor non-edited pictures. 
  • Remember to title each of your photo, post them here in this forum AND in your shutterbugs album
  • As Always, remember what the judges are looking for, check the judging criterias in the second post for what you should be mindful of.



DEADLINE:  Tuesday, DECEMBER 20th

Extensions are allowed, contact Sylentwhysper for extensions.

JUDGING CRITERIAS


These are the things the judges will be looking for in your photos. 

We will be scoring according to these basic criterias.


  • Perspective and Depth - We are looking for an interesting point of view or camera angle, foreground and background that creates some depth and realism
  • Composition - overall appeal, balance in the way subject and background are placed, lines that draw in the eye or create movement, rule of thirds
  • Lighting and Colour - does the lighting suit the assignment mood and theme, does the lighting complement the photo, do the colours and lighting create interest
  • Uniqueness and Details - consider the details, does the photo have anything unique, is there attention to details in the background, foreground, props etc.
  • Following Guidelines and insructions - make sure to follow the instructions, if something is unclear, ask because there are a lot of points to be lost here

*Waves to Everyone!!*


Just to clarify, the first 10 photos that you put into your new album DOES NOT have to be fantasy related.  We just want to see your best work and what you do on your own. 


@AshleyRen, welcome to your first Shutterbugs!  It's okay, if you have any questions or clarification, please just ask!  :)


@Hello, FA!  Good to see ya here.  Practice makes perfect!  LOL!!  :P


@Steph, yay!!  Looking forward to your photos!!


@Smoky is in the house!!  Your lovely work will be a joy to see in this competition.  Oh, yeah, as mentioned above, the first 10 photos do not have to be fantasy, unless you want them to be, lol.

O Oohh Shutterbugs! I was going to pass this one because I wanted to focus on my SIFF project... but it's very tempting and I have many old pictures that I want to submit. xD


(Edited) Oops! So it's almost a whole month process... Might aswell go through the weekly challenges. XD
