Once upon a time, in a far away land (called the Interwebs), there was a magical camera. For years, this magical camera brought joy to millions by capturing moments and memories. The camera thrived, it’s days full of smiles and cheese…or at least, people talking about cheese which subsequently…mysteriously…made them smile! It was a happy time in the Interwebs…until a shadow fell over the land.
Slowly but surely, the camera began having difficulties. Basic compositions were hard to think through. ISO’s and Time values became mind-boggling concepts. The camera was in a fog. Everything he tried felt flat and colorless…and the camera checked…he wasn’t set for monochromes! What the magical picture-maker needed was some inspiration… a “Creative Challenge”, so to speak.
Just as the camera came to that realization, a knight in shining armor raced up. “Camera! Thou art in a creative rut! But fear not, a solution hath arrived.” The knight proceeded to tell the camera (and, due to his lack of volume control, most of the Interwebs) about this month’s Collaborative Creative Challenge hosted by Sir Nick Exposed and the fair maiden Seeing Spots Photography. Talk about impeccable timing!
