Shooting Challenge: Anthropomorphism

Illustration for article titled Shooting Challenge: Anthropomorphism

You know what commercial I can't get out of my head? The Amex commercial the one where faces are found where they shouldn't be. That's the Shooting Challenge for this week. Make inanimate objects animate.

The rules:

1. Submissions need to be your own.
2. Photos need to be taken the week of the contest. (No portfolio linking or it spoils the "challenge" part.)
3. Explain, briefly, the equipment, settings and technique used to snag the shot.
4. Email submissions to
5. Include 800px image AND something wallpaper sized in email.


Send your best entries by Sunday at 6PM Eastern to with "Anthropomorphism" in the subject line. Save your files as JPGs or GIFs at 800 pixels wide, and use a FirstnameLastname.jpg naming convention using whatever name you want to be credited with. Include your shooting summary (camera, lens, ISO, etc) in the body of the email. ALSO, AND THIS IS SOMEWHAT NEW, ATTACH A 2560x1600 JPEG AS WELL FOR PEOPLE TO DOWNLOAD AS WALLPAPER. [Image]
