This month’s Breakfast Stock Club Premium Challenge is “Get Geometric,” and the idea is to spot and capture shapes in your photos.
Even if you’re not a Premium member, you can still go out and photograph shapes for stock.
Here are a few examples to get you started:
Circles: Circles can make an image feel whole, complete, and provide a sense of symmetry or balance.
Triangles: Triangles are a very strong shape that will draw the viewer’s eye. They can also be used like an arrow, to point the viewer toward the subject.
Rectangles & Squares: These shapes can make an image feel orderly and organized. They can also be used to isolate or frame a subject.
I hope this inspires you to have some fun shooting shapes this holiday season! The possibilities are endless.
Premium members – Remember, you have an entire guide custom written for this Challenge, filled with techniques to help you shoot shapes creatively, along with keywording tips from professional stock photographer Matthew Spaulding. I can’t wait to see what you come up with! Submit a photo for group critique by December 30.
[Editor’s Note: Learn more about getting started selling your photos online in stock agencies – no matter how much or little photography experience you have – in the Breakfast Stock Club e-newsletter. It’s once a week, and it’s free to join, here.]
