The last few subjects for the monthly theme may have been to simplistic for some members so this month I’m making it a bit more challenging. The subject is emotion which is all about capturing a moment in time and conveying the emotion to the viewer. It could be a happy or sad moment. A image showing fear, anger or delight. We see can regularly see these scenes, but how often do we record them? The image doesn’t have to be technically perfect, it’s all about the feeling it gives. It’s a memory for us to look back on and recall. Use your imagination. Test your reflexes and camera skills and show us what you can do.
I’ve found an excellent video explaining capturing emotion. It’s well worth viewing even if you don’t want to enter.July 5, 2019 at 9:20 am #19013
I’ll kick of this month’s theme with a couple of photos from my archives. I was in the right place at the right time to record the look of horror on the lady rugby players face. It’s far from technically perfect, but it caught the moment.
This one was taken at the Manchester Carnival and was a bit easier to take. It captures a moment of joy. I converted it to black and white to remove the distracting colours.
Just one more showing happiness. It’s good to see people enjoying themselves and showing it.July 11, 2019 at 9:12 am #19059
Probably the easiest emotion to capture is happiness. People like to smile and be seen smiling. I think we must all have a few photos of people smiling, but it’s more rewarding when you capture a spontaneous smile. I took one at Crewe’s recent TrAction event. Have you any photos of people smiling?

Here’s another rugby photo. this one shows the mixed emotions of winners and losers.
