In art classes and often for competitions, a title is part of submitting a piece. I’ve always been challenged by this concept, because I thought I didn’t want to use anything more than the image to influence the viewer’s imagination. Some images, however, I admit, beg a title. I can’t quite explain why. Maybe its my mother in me driving to improve vocabulary, but I think a one-word title can sometimes be part of what completes an image. Why just one word? Because it implies without giving away too much. One word still leaves room for interpretation. So, I’d like to include you in a quick exercise if you’ll agree to humor me for just a moment longer. Here are a few examples that present the opportunity for entitlement. Click on the larger image to scroll through all six shots. Take a look at each one and think of what comes to mind. Any specific feeling or thought. What word would you choose as a title for each shot? I can’t wait to see what you come up with! Then, at the end of my one-week-photo-a-day week, I’ll give you my “artists statement” for each of these 6 images.
