Weekly Photo Challenge: Near and Far


There are many ways in which you could approach this challenge. You could go with some image expressing distance, one which symbolises things which come from near and far or you could play it safe and talk about foreground and background, like I’ve done.

This image isn’t one of my proud moments of photography. It’s a bit out of focus and the composition is crowded; but then photography is not all about the clarity of the image or it’s composition. It can be about what the photo means to you. I took this photo at a Train concert with my best friend and my cousin, and it was a great night. The music was lovely, the atmosphere live and the people friendly. Having the hands in the forefront of this photo, making them the focus of it, changes the way gig photography normally is. I’ve placed the focus on the audience rather than the singer, leaving him in the far background. This conception of near and far changes the way the viewer of the picture sees the concert.

    The best bit about this challenge is that out of focus and composition aren’t judged! If they were I’d be bottom of the heap. I love this interpretation, it’s fun an vibrant. Thanks for sharing.
