Weekly Photo Challenge: Free Spirit

This week, the Daily Post weekly photo challenge is “free spirit”. The guest host this week is Strauss Louw:

Free Spirit. I chose this as the topic for this week’s photo challenge as it lends itself to so many possibilities for subject matter and composition. I work exclusively with film and believe this element is quite important concerning a theme such as the free spirit, as it allows for more experimentation and creative exploration due to how film reacts differently to light than a digital sensor would. To capture this idea of the free spirit, I would suggest breaking some rules.

I’m not certain my interpretation of the theme is the same as his, but it is, nonetheless, an interpretation and I’m going with it!

    I understand what you mean about having a different interpretation of “Free Spirit” Carol. I immediately thought of a being too, rather than light reaction, which is what Strauss Louw seems to be saying. I love your photo, and think your interprtation is wonderful! 🙂

    Good job, Carol. I like the way you put the perspective point off to the side and high up. It really draws attention from all directions to the subject.
