August Photo Challenge

The August Challenge is SHOOT LIKE A PRO!
 
This challenge is a little different to all the others. In this challenge I want you to do a bit of research and try to replicate a photo from one of the following Masters of Photography listed below. Most professional photographers would often practice at home or in a studio by taking photographs of still life or botanical scenes. They always say practice makes perfect and by taking photographs in different lighting conditions or using different compositions these photographers were well practiced and could use the techniques leant in the studio in real life situations. So what I want you to do is choose an image taken by one of the following photographers, study it carefully and then try to copy that photograph as precisely as you can. Look at the lighting, the composition, the materials used, the camera angle, etc. It’s not as easy as you think - I promise.
 
When you upload your image on photo entry, do not rename the image, simply put the original authors name and title of the photograph (if the original has a title - not all do) in the title box.
Here are the photographers - there are 5 classic black and white photographers and 3 more modern colour photographers - You’ll find the colour photographs are a little more complicated or quirky but if you’re up for it and have the correct props, give it a go. It’s up to you which photo you try to copy (still life/botanical/compositional set up).
 
The photographers are:
Robert Mapplethorpe
Edward Weston
Andre Kertesz
Tom Baril
Joseph Sudek
Sharon Core
Irving Penn
Martin Parr
 
So to sum up:
Submit - 2 photographs via photo entry
Deadline - 25th August, 2020
Judge - Marc Brimble
Judged live on zoom - 7.30pm on 1st September, 2020
 
Let’s see lots of entries for this one.
