Challenge! Cameraderie Photo Challenge #43: Layers


Start Date
Jan 14, 2021
End Date
Jan 28, 2021
The Cameraderie 43th Challenge theme is: Layers

One of the things I'm working on right now is trying to incorporate layers into my street photography, so I thought that would be a good challenge theme as well.
Layering isn't just for street photography, it can be applied to virtually all photographic genres. Here are some resources to get your started:
** NOTE **
In your submission, please include a brief explanation of how you used layers in your photo. If 3 or more people complain to say that the explanation ruins the fun of the challenge, I'll remove that requirement (well, it's more of a request than a requirement).

As usual, this challenge will consider originality, technical merit, and artistic vision.

No change to the tried and trusted rules, which are as follows:

1. Either take pictures that match the nominated theme or select some from your portfolio. You must be the photographer that created the images in order to enter it.

2. Only one entry per challenge, please. If you want to withdraw an entry and replace it with another, that is OK, but you must make it clear in the post containing your replacement pictures that this is what you've done. You can add or change the title and add to the edit line to let everyone know.

3. The decision of the curator at the end of the challenge is final - don't give him/her a hard time about it: this is just a friendly photo-challenge, after all!

4. The winner will assume the responsibility of curator for the next Challenge, and as soon as possible post a message in a new thread in the Cameraderie Photo Challenges forum, with details of the new theme. Don't forget - that opening message must include a copy of these instructions, which also double as the rules.

5. The curator cannot enter in his or her own challenge.

Interesting subject.

I watched the video and went through some of my photos of people and realised how shallow most of those photos are, for the lack of a story and/or emotional depth perhaps. But then I found this one, I don't consider it good but it was around the time when I read a series of books explaining camera angles and movements used in films and the effects they have, and I kept that in mind when I had some unusual chances to shoot people.

This one was taken in 2013 when I visited Sri Lanka for the 2nd time, it was at a fish market and it was absolutely new to me that you could buy fish like that, and they apparently eat a lot of fish, and I couldn't understand till today as I don't speak Sinhala and I didn't stay long enough to know the cooking.

As for "layering", I can remember that I was paying attention to the angle and composition, I wanted to show the full of variety of fish, the environment, the people and how they were like, even a little bit of the Sinhala language on the sign (it looks cute and sounds funny), it is one of the many images I always remember about the country.
