@ampt what is the visual statement that is made here? What's the story other than she likes garlic?
Well the story is, that a hipstamatic combo that I rarely have tried, inspires me to use and see what I can come out with.... In the opening comments, the color, focus and cropping were also noted. @brandonscales The appreciation of things that may go un-noticed is also a thrust that the people at @stilllifelounge have. The image is forcible! Thanks @annacox and @ikebana_jen .
@rmsherwood that's not a story, that's your desire to shoot and inspiration. Both I can appreciate however, there is no story here other than process. With out the caption, would there still be story?
Very nice!! @kiwinan 👍✨
Congrats lovely @kiwinan this is a glorious image❤😘
@kiwinan thanks for sharing your story with us here on AMPt.
@kiwinan wow huge Congrats Joy!!
Well done @kiwinan!! :-)
Wonderful inspiration thank you for the insight!
@brandonscales hey Brandon I saw your comment to @ampt so I thought I should reply as I am a member and also one of the originators of #stilllifelounge. You may be unfamiliar with the lounge but the goal is to take photos of a set theme every week. This weeks theme was vegetables in color. By definition a still life is a photo, painting drawing etc of inanimate objects I think that @kiwinan executed just that.
@kiwinan Wonderful shot, Joy, and a great story of how it came to be! I thought you added the garlic in the background during editing. Nice to read about the process! ✨😍😍😍✨
@annacox I know what a still life is. Excuses me for having an opinion and wanting to have a discussion with others. I wasn't trying to step in any toes. All of you people need to understand the value of peer critiquing
Do photos always have to have a story? When Edward Weston did his pepper series, he was simply interested in elevating an ordinary object away from the world of mundane. Light, form and the technical aspects of photography were the important structural elements. The same for Walker Evans, influenced by Westen, but after he grew and photographed, he eat and even recorded his recipes. @brandonscales @annacox @ikebana_jen
@rmsherwood you're contradicting yourself. A series is a story. A record of events is a story
@brandonscales I don't have a problem with you having an opinion in the least Brandon. I was just unsure if you understood the aim of the lounge seeing that the ampt projects are new to our feed. I didn't mean to talk down to you if it seemed that way I apologize.
Again, @brandonscales , not a contradiction. Not every photo needs a story.
@rmsherwood you're obviously too stubborn to see other perspective. Your closed mind will come through in your photos
i love still-lifes. i think the appreciation for form, colour, composition is worth a look at. the ability to look at garlic in a new way or to use garlic as an exciting visual element is worth highlighting.
@kiwinan stunning- so great to see you here with this awesome shot!!
Congratulations @kiwinan Well done 💝
Love this image @kiwinan ! and love also that what you saw excited you enough to drop everything and pick up your phone. The gift of seeing the world with fresh eyes is a great one.
@kiwinan you are very welcome.... Did not mean to get into a contentious dialogue but c'est la vie! And your image deserved to be defended!
@rmsherwood @kiwinan @annacox , just read all the comments and so glad to see that positive energy, community spirit, beauty and reason prevail. @kiwinan again, beautiful image😘thankyou so much for sharing it to the lounge.
Thank you for commenting, I really thought that I was trying to be reasonable and certainly did not want to continue a contentious engagement but, ah well...! I felt that the "story" was there all around.... Thanks again, the stilllife lounge is an interesting forum that I really enjoy and the image selected was nicely done..
