Your challenge this week is to photograph a sound you heard.
In daily life we are inundated with words. We read novels, magazines, newspapers, Google etc. and all these words describe actions, surroundings, settings, sounds, even characters. For this challenge you are going to make us hear the sound through our eyes.
Here are a few inspirational suggestions for describing sounds you hear. You may chose to pick one or come up with your own to create your sound picture.
We’ll start with an easy one:
A dog barked
Music pulsed inside the building
The white noise whoosh of traffic
The wind made the chimes hanging in the tree sing
Full throated growl of a truck or motorcycle
Slap of rope against the ground as someone skips
Tramping feet as people march
A piercing silence
The phone rang
The clink of cutlery on china
Ice clinking in a glass
A cough or sneeze
A joyous laugh
The alarm clock
The spray from a water hose
The sticking of a match
Boots on a gravel footpath
The swish of a satin skirt
Now go and use your imagination, consider composition and lighting, and show us your creative sound pictures. Remember to enjoy yourself and have fun this week. I can’t wait to see what you come up with.
