Photo Title: Life is a Canvas

Self Portrait
Life is a Canvas 

We all start off the same, given a life that we take into our own hands to do what we please. This picture represents me reflecting on my life. At moments it can look like complete and utter chaos. But as humans, our lives are canvases, and our experiences, good or bad, paint who we are, and who we become. Eventually as we take a step back and look at all the “paint splattered experiences” we begin to notice that those bad experiences blend in with the good to create a painting of who we are.

Amanda included this story about her photo:
My friends and I went on an adventure around our neighborhood and came across an old, abandoned house. The house was falling to pieces and each step we took, we feared that we would fall through the floor. We joked around saying that the house was haunted but the more we stayed inside of the house, the stranger things got. Whenever I tried to focus my camera in certain spots of the house, it just would not work (I thought my camera was broken, until I went outside and pointed it to other areas of the house and it worked perfectly fine). Then, I brought a doll as a prop, an ordinary plastic children's doll that I placed on the floor of a room that appeared to once be a young girl's room. When I went to retrieve the doll to use for a picture, it looked different. The hands of the doll began to turn green and the lighting in the room was slightly dimmer. It was then when I decided that I wanted to have fun with my idea of the "haunted house."

I set up my friend by a half broken window and had my other friend place her hands in a bunch of different locations, symbolizing that the spirits were trapped inside of this house and cannot get out. I added a gradient to the window to make it look older, added cracks to the "ghosts" arms, and accentuated the darkness by turning it to black and white.

Thanks for the great photo and the story! There is still time to send your photo contest entries to Get your photo in before 9pm on Monday March 3rd to win!
