Just to remind people that the monthly prompt will alternate between being focused on the subject matter and the following month it will be focused on a photography skill, style or editing effect. Examples of subject related prompts we have had so far are; Panties/Underwear, Halloween, Back to School, All about the men and examples of photography skills/styles/edits are Marco, Black and White, Silhouettes. This month it is time for a subject matter inspired prompt….
This month’s prompt is; All about the women
Women, female, feminine…. show me what those words mean to you. After the amazing images that the ‘All about the men’ prompt inspired I thought it would be interesting to have a female version. As with the ‘men’ prompt it is not essential for your image to include a woman hence the inclusion of the term feminine. This prompt is not necessarily about biology, after all men have their feminine side too.
When I posted the male version of this prompt I said that I “believed that the representation of the male body within mainstream media is just about as warped as that is of the female body.” In fact I believe that this is an issue that effects both genders, The visual representation of the human body has become something that we see every single day and yet so many of those images are aggressively digitally manipulated to create this completely false illusion of what humans really look like without their clothes on. One of the things I have always tried to inspire with Sinful Sunday is that we as a community attempt to show a more realistic, truthful view of things and this prompt is to encourage that this time with the focus on the female/feminine form.
The prompt is published here on the site mid month, which will give people approximately 2 weeks to work on their idea before linking in, on the 1st weekend of the month. The prompt is completely optional and you can link in as normal on that weekend whether you have used the prompt or not. The usual Sinful Sunday rules will, of course, apply. Please make sure you have read them recently so that you are fully aware of what is and is not allowed.
As always interpret as you wish, or disregard altogether and do you own thing.
