June 18, 2015 - Opposites attract


It's a well known fact that opposites attract. Not only do opposites attract but they actually go great together. Don't you agree? Just think of the amazingly tasting sour sweet food and you'll say yes to our new assignment: Opposites attract.

Polarities
We're thinking of odd couples and while we'd like to see the cliché good girl and bad boy pose reversed for a change, don't limit yourselves to just human chemistry. We wouldn't mind a Real Madrid fan holding hands with an FC Barcelona fan but our advice is to just pick things that don't usually go together and turn them into surprisingly awesome looking 'couples': unusual BFF pets, a cute baby playing with a huge Mastiff, goldfish checking out the tank window glued cat, French fries with caviar, high heels and golf trousers to a black tie party, a delicate ballerina dancing with a rapper, she loves summer and he loves winter.

Conceptual clashes
Take what we hold as oldtime opposites and show the chemistry or the clash between them in unique shots or designs. We do require complexity and elaboration of confrontations between water and fire, love and hate, good and bad, day and night, hot and cold, dry and wet. To give you some ideas: innocent angel fighting fierce demon, boxer glove against friendly handshake, smooth satin contrasting rough burlap, two faces of the same person in the mirror, my neat part of the room vs. your messy part of the room, sun scorched wasteland against lush green field.

Strong contrasts look swell together
Why does a red clutch look stunning with a snow white dress? You can take this assignment in graphic terms and make it visual. Convey the attraction between opposites in powerful contrasts: a magenta sofa in a monochrome room, polka dots and stripes on the same outfit, ginger kitten and black kitten coiled together, a vibrant colorful umbrella on a gloomy rainy day, white bikini on tanned skin, yellow lemons on ocean blue floor. No yin and yang please, unless they're spectacular or unusual reinterpretations of this classic symbol.

Just plain opposites
All you need is play the easy opposite game and imagine before/after collages showing someone eating a chocolate icecream and the afterwards mess or the same girl wearing a classy black dress and a casual summery frock. Pull up a list of opposites and take a look around, old and new, tall and short, happy and sad, healthy and unhealthy will pop up everywhere. Examples: headshot of happy man and angry woman facing each other, a vegan dinner or a beefsteak with chips, grandma's drawer blending perfectly in a modern apartment design, a senior man walking with his grandson, a huge wedding cake next to a muffin, underwater half view with island above, a skyscraper next to small old house.

The prizes at stake are: $300 for the first place, $200 for the second and $100 for the third place. Don't forget all three winners get a branded Dreamstime tee.
