The Word Project: details

Each month, the CMteam is asked to interpret a different word through their own personal images.  It’s been so fun watching the different variations of each word and this months chosen word was ‘Details.’  A word that can be interpreted in so many different ways, and the team were excited to show their different variations of the word.   We think they’ve come up with some really lovely and unique images, and we hope that you enjoy them.

the word project: forgotten

the word project: forgotten

the word project: freelensing

Each month, the CMteam is asked to interpret a different word through their own personal images.  It’s been so fun watching the different variations of each word and this month was probably the most challenging to date.  The word chosen this month was ‘freelensing’, something that many of the team hadn’t attempted before.  Considering the extra challenge, we think they’ve come up with some really lovely and unique images, and we hope you enjoy them.

If you’d like to have a(…)

the word project: mysterious

Each month, the CMteam is given a single word and asked to interpret it through individual images.  This month we were given the word Mysterious, a word that can be interpreted in so many different ways.  The dictionary itself has three different definitions for it but when we think of it photographically, the definitions are much more varied.  We always look forward to showing creativity and diversity through our own unique styles and perspectives and we hope you enjoy these(…)

Each month, the CMteam are given a single word and asked to interpret it through individual images.  We look forward to showing creativity and diversity through our own unique styles and perspectives.

This month’s word, luminous which the Merriam Webster dictionary defines as “emitting or reflecting usually steady, suffused, or glowing light”, evoked and inspired an amazing collection of light filled image.  Although our photography styles differ, this month’s word really blended our images together beautifully.

We hope you enjoy this month’s(…)
