Life is loud. Life is hard. Forget the calm, let’s capture the chaos! ūüôā

52Frames is designed to improve your craft in  3 main categories: Creativity, Story, and Technique.
This week’s challenge is designed to hone first and foremost your storytelling skills.
What story would you like to create? What does “chaos” look like to you?


 Tips and Tuts for this week:

  • Check out these cool “chaotic” photos from photographers all over the world
  • Channel the greats! Draw inspiration from surrealist painters like¬†Salvador Dali¬†and Rene Magritte. Or, surrealist photographers like Ronen Goldman, Oleg Oprisco, and Erik Johansson
  • Just because it seems mundane, doesn’t mean it is! There is beauty in the everyday mess and the craziness of daily life. Show it off!

Looking for more inspiration? Check out¬†our “Dreams & Fantasies” album from 2015. And of course,¬†The Googles! Oh you sweet Googles.
