Our second, and thankfully final, team challenge was to create a marketing piece for a made up studio. We had to create a logo a brand and a message. This round was judged on team participation along with all the other criteria from the rest of the competition. I can not show you our piece but I was pretty proud of the way my team members came together against the obstacles of running our own studios and family obligations. Our team had the additional challenge of losing our team captain early in the round. My team then elected me team captain and we marched on bravely. Our team was once again on the losing end of this challenge. Both teams put out amazing work.
The amazing thing was that even though our team lost, I won the over all challenge! This was because of my determination to keep our team motivated and going in a positive direction in spite of the difficulties we faced.
Being the challenge winner I was given the advantage in the next round of picking the challenge and having a 5 hour head start at creating my image.
My options were photographing
Originally I wanted to go with animals since that is something I'm pretty good at. But I knew that my fellow photographers would also be pretty good at that too. I chose Food/Drink.
I set off to the grocery store to round up some food items for the shot.
As I was going through the isles I saw this item with the same name as the fake studio name my team came up with for the last challenge. I had to use it! Since it was the work of my team that gave me the last win, it was only fitting that I gave them a nod. Here is the image I came up with. Our fake studio name was Blue Sky Portrait Studio. One of our taglines was
Nothing but Blue Skies......
Here are a few other images I created and considered using. I probably should have since I didn't win the challenge. I did get into the next round so that was exciting.
I have been eating a ton of strawberries and blueberries this summer! mmmmm!
