Love – January’s Assignment Gallery

In honor of Valentines Day, the January assignment was to photograph Love. We wanted to see how you visually communicate the emotion of love. Each photographer was asked to explore relationships between subjects, show us your take on iconic imagery, use colors, play with visual metaphors– anything that communicated love. Each person was asked to answer the following questions:

1. What challenges did you encounter while working on this assignment?
2. Did anything surprise you while photographing love?
3. Which photograph is your favorite?

1. What challenges did you encounter while working on this assignment?
First time I’ve accepted an assignment; so, it was a real struggle: shooting for myself AND a ‘client’.

2. Did anything surprise you while photographing love?
Of course: using my imagination to find a way to communicate emotion visually.

3. Which photograph is your favorite?
The one I haven’t captured yet: enduring patience–my wife & my secret to our 30-year marriage.

Jane Clark

1. What challenges did you encounter while working on this assignment?
Coming up with a love image that was a little unusual.

2. Did anything surprise you while photographing love?
If you look, you will find it in some strange, and some common places.

3. Which photograph is your favorite?
Children with arms entwined from Camp Sunshine, a camp for children with cancer.

Diana Renelli

1. What challenges did you encounter while working on this assignment?
I really enjoy shooting through windows because they give the appearance of dreaminess, but it can be hard to cut down the glare as well as find a variety of different angles from which to shoot.

2. Did anything surprise you while photographing love?
I think what surprised me most is that in two of the three pictures I took, it seems to me that I’m saying love isn’t so easy.

3. Which photograph is your favorite?
The first photograph is my favorite because of the richness of colour the artist used in his painting and the different ways he represented the heart.
