This assignment is an opportunity to daydream like you did as a kid. It's a chance to find your North Star—that person, place, or thing that calls to you—and show us an image that launches you in the direction of your dreams. Maybe it's a friend achieving a seemingly impossible goal, or a Death Valley sunset inspiring you to reconsider your path, or an antique rocker on a farm porch in Vermont that makes you yearn for simplicity.
Take a moment to Imagine If …
Thank you for your contributions!
So you've figured out what your life's dream is. Now it's time to visualize yourself—in that place, with that person, doing that thing you love.
I like photos that are more than what they seem and allow the viewer to imagine the rest of the story. What am I really looking at and what does it mean? Get creative with this assignment—let your imagination run wild with the concept of living your dream.
You can play with light, reflections or time lapse to give your photo a more dreamy or conceptual feeling. Put yourself in the picture, either literally or figuratively.
It's never too late to try something new and go down a different path. Let the photo in your mind out.
Have you ever put a photo where you would see it every day? Maybe to serve as a motivational tool and help you keep your eye on the prize. What is your prize? What does living your dream look like? Please provide context in your caption—what does the photo represent and why is it important?
Photography can inspire us to reach higher and dream bigger—it can show us the possibilities in life.
