Sinful Sunday Monthly Prompt May 2020
The prompt for 3rd May 2020 is: Unedited
This month we suggested back in October last year by Annie Savoy during my podcast interview with her. In that episode she said
“To see if people would do a picture without any editing at all. You can’t crop it, filter it, (watermarks is OK) It would be really interesting because I feel as though with digital photography especially it is very difficult to trust your eye because you figure you can fix it after the fact and so if you are just going to take a picture and post that pictures without any editing at all. Does it change the way you take a picture? Would you pay more attention? Or would you set up more carefully? Does it make you look at all the corners of the picture to make sure there is nothing there you want to edit out afterwards?”
So that is your task. Take and post a completely unedited image. No filters, no cropping, no editing at ALL (watermarks are OK) and then if you felt like it, it might be interesting to answer some of the questions Annie said. How did knowing you couldn’t edit the image in any way change, if at all, the process of taking the picture?
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. Have your post ready to go for Sunday 3rd May 2020. Any questions or queries can be posted in the comments below, you can email me [email protected] or tweet me @mollysdailykiss
I like this one! Makes it a different kind of challenge. Back to the times when we didn’t have these editing capabilities (not that I was alive for that lol)
2. Now I have to really think about this prompt and follow all my own advice and answer all my own questions. Dammit, Molly… 🙂
This looks awesome! I have a feeling great content will come out of this prompt.
An interesting challenge!
