January 18, 2016 - Real people in real time


Leave all directing impulses behind, we're challenging you to make no plans, use no studios and no fancy models this time. It's a fact that snapshots are more popular today than carefully planned sessions so we'd like to see the raw emotion, the authenticity and the dynamics of those simple details of our lives. Here's our proposition for this assignment: Real people in real time.

Everyday experiences
Arm yourself with patience and wait for those moments to just come up. Some of them will make you laugh or cry so you just need to be there and shoot the picture of the day. A person buying a newspaper while going to work, puddle-soaked pedestrians waiting to cross the street, a man trying to catch the bus, a woman chasing her windblown umbrella, a policeman directing the traffic, someone buying fruits in the marketplace, reading the news on your tablet on your way to work, all these are small things that matter for this assignment.

Emotions
Real people in real time is also about raw emotions like smiling instantly when you meet an old friend, a happy child caressing a dog, the joy of the people attending their favourite band's concert. If you're lucky, you can witness a wedding proposal in the middle of the street or in a restaurant. Do not overlook the less happy or joyful moments of like. The expression of an angry driver, the tears in the eyes of a young girl, the sad woman checking her reflection in a shop window are also part of our reality.

Authentic style moments
The word of the assignment should be genuine so capture life as it is and as it happens. Think of natural light and authentic reactions. Don't give directions, don't think the scene over, just shoot it when you see it. Even if you 'organize' a small shooting, just walk by and let those people act naturally. Catch children smiles at the playground, a girl looking absorbed while reading a book, a woman thanking her friend for helping pick up some shopping bags, the expressions of a baby shower's attendees, the grimace you make when someone accidentally steps on your toe.

Let things happen and show us some real people in real time. You can win $300 for the first place, $200 for the second and $100 for the third place along with a branded Dreamstime tee.
