The iStock brief that I mentioned a few weeks ago is now over so I can share those photos with you. Although thousands of photos were submitted for these two briefs the client declined to buy ANY. This is discouraging to some who submit because they might go to a lot of trouble and even expense to create just what the client requests. But it was fun for me anyway and I learned a lot. I had the incentive to take photos that I'd been intending to do anyway. And the photos are now in my iStock portfolio so some of them might sell eventually. The brief request was for old and new technology. Old watches are an excellent example of old technology. The batch I am showing on my homepage slide show today includes photos of my husband's old watch collection. He is a collector. He has all kinds of collections though none are valuable, just interesting. In this series I arranged his collection of old watches in various ways ending in a concept image of time receding or diminishing. Ever notice as you get older how quickly time seems to compress and how much more time there seems to be behind than ahead of you? Me too.
