I'm so glad I started to title the modelling pics with the name of the competition and the assignment, otherwise I'd have no idea what the picture was about.
This was one of JKAmaryllis' competitions back in 2011. The first assignment was to take something that was always overdone as an assignment and troll it, and we also had to write a blurb (which I found; it follows the picture):
I’ve been as guilty as other hosts for using the color assignment. It’s an easy concept to come up with but a pain when you’re the one that has to do the assignment. The reasons to hate it: whether you are representing one or three colors, it takes away a competitor’s creative license. Especially if you can only use those colors, and sometimes the colors given clash but they want you to make it work. How? By divine intervention. Or they want an explanation of what the color represents which means researching and coming up with the perfect story of what the color means to your model and it gets so tedious after awhile with no originality in sight, because they all end up looking the same after awhile.
Well, Represent This!
Comments: I love the edgy pattern in the background and her pose. Love how there is no rhyme or reason to the color scheme and as a whole it's just kind of in your face. One thing that is distracting me a little is the bottom of her skirt.. Maybe if it had been shot at a slightly different angle then you wouldn't notice the awkward area below her hand.
Relevance to assignment 27/30
I agree that that assignment is overplayed and stifles creativity!
This picture is stunning! Your model looks absolutely gorgeous! There are so many colors going on and she actually pulls it off. I really don’t feel like it is ridiculing the assignment, looks too good.
