creativity exercise: off with their heads!

Sarah Wilkerson has been at it again and challenging us to stretch our creativity!

creativity exercise | off with their heads!

Because breaking the rules is oh so much FUN!

The challenge:  One of the first things to draw the viewer’s eye in any given image is the human face. For this exercise, your image has to draw the viewer in in other ways. Present a portrait of a person that EXCLUDES the head. Cut off should be no higher than the neck, no lower than the waist. Do your best to include some clues in the image that tell us something about the subject’s personality (even though we can’t see his/her face), tell a story, etc.

And our band of mightily talented Clickin Moms did not disappoint yet again!  Here are some of their wonderful submissions:

    Still working on a membership so that I can join the forums, but here is one of my daughter that I did for another challenge. And can I just add that I love headless shots for some reason?!
