#snapaphoto April Photo Challenge: Week 4

The #snapaphoto challenge is officially over! How crazy. April went so fast! Wait…don’t I say that EVERY month? Anyways, here are Week 4’s submissions. I just want to clarify that while my photo LOOKS like a candid, I promise I asked her if I could take her picture. The conversation went like this:

Me (nervous): Hi! I was wondering if I could take your picture? *SILENCE*

Lady: What?

Me: Can I take your picture?

Lady: Do I have to look at the camera?

Me: Ummm, nope! *CLICK* Thanks!

Lady: Thanks for asking!

Exciting, huh? To all you participants…how did your experience unfold? Were you nervous? Did you get rejected beforehand? I seriously was really nervous. I only mustered up the courage to go up and ask the woman working at Stauf’s (coffeeshop) because I had to get going to pick up my dog from the groomer. My favorite shot was Jon’s. So much character in his subject AND background. Lovely. Which portrait is your favorite?

Thank you to ALL who participated over the last month. If you’re late to the party, you can look back on Week 1, Week 2, and Week 3. The winner of this challenge will be announced on Friday morning after your lovely judge, Kara, chooses her favorite!

  • Oh my goodness, Jules, that is a gorgeous portrait.

  • Jessica R

    I love Susan’s portrait! Her subject looks so happy to be posing.
    My conversation went something like this, at a Starbucks in the airport:
    Me to two women: Can I ask you a favor? I’m participating in a contest on my friend’s blog and have to take a picture of a stranger. Could I take your picture?
    One woman: Take her picture.
    Other woman (her friend): Ok. As long as you don’t put my head on a naked body :)

  • I love Jon’s. I can’t put my finger on why. I think that little old man is so interesting and look at all of the interesting things behind him! Great job, everyone.

  • I think Jules’ did a great job of capturing a subtle expression in her portrait. I think it is lovely.

    And Joel’s portrait is a favorite of mine. I love the warmth to the image and the pillows in the background, but I especially love how the woman’s facial features and expression are in the image. I don’t know exactly why, but it has something to do with her eyes.

    Lots of excellent work overall. I loved the results of this challenge.
