Something that I have really struggled with to get across well in a digital image for the next theme challenge, form
. It's all a matter of the use of light on the subject and the POV, to bring out the dimension, especially when viewing an image on a monitor.
[pad](noun) - Form is one of the seven elements of art. At its most basic, a form is a three-dimensional geometrical figure (i.e.: sphere, cube, cylinder, cone, etc.), as opposed to a shape, which is two-dimensional, or flat.[/pad]
I'm hoping this choice of theme will allow everyone a crack at it, even if like me, you don't get out much, there are plenty of simple things around the home that you could explore forms with.
Go forth and have fun with it! I'm looking forward to seeing images that get beyond the 2D limitations of a monitor.
As an example, here's a couple of images of mine (not for judging, obviously) that hopefully show how one thing can have a different appearance to its forms, just from the differing POV's. Both were taken on the same day and in the same light conditions.
Feedback and honest, constructive criticism is greatly appreciated.
