Photo prompt Foto RX 52 :: On black

Pear with shadow on dark by michelle p. via besotted

Our prompt this week for our Foto Rx Co. weekly prompt is ‘on black’. We want you to get dark + dramatic with your subject. You can shoot in color or do a B+W conversion (like we will be doing). This assignment relies on finding interesting light to make your subject stand out. You can choose everyday simple objects like this pear but a portrait would be equally as stunning. Think outside the box, we think you will be pleasantly surprised by what you can create with such simple subjects and the right light (even Ipad light could work, get creative!).

It’s not too late to start your Foto Rx 52, shooting consistently will be the fastest way to becoming a better photographer. Follow us on Instagram for more inspo and edit examples. Shoot this week’s prompt and use #fotorx52 so we can find you and cheer you on (also feel free to borrow our hashtags so other people can find you!).
