Your dream photograph?

:iconemilyblox:
emilyblox Featured By Owner Nov 1, 2012  Hobbyist Photographer
What photograph would you LOVE to take? One that you've maybe had in your head for ages, but haven't got the resources or money for. Or maybe you can't travel to your dream location. Try your best to describe it in the comments below. :eager:

Mine would be a 60's black and white inspired shoot, with old furniture and models in suits and old, fancy dresses. Unfortunately, no furniture and models at the moment :(
Another would be a waterfall shot, but living in England, that's very tough!

My dream photograph would be one that finally shows clearly what I have in mind, instead of just kinda showing what I was thinking about. But for that I'd need a lot of props, and models and other stuff that might cost the money that I don't have. xD

I guess my dream photograph would be someone in a tree in the snow which is hard living in California with not much snow..........

Not where I live..... We have to drive for a few hours before we can get to the snow... It's sad. I love the snow.

That sucks! Though on saying that, we never have much snow here, it just gets VERY cold. :(

My dream photograph would be something that pleases the people who view it. I want people to be able to look at one of my photos and think "Wow, I love this"; the ability to move even just one person with my work is more than enough for me.

I've actually always wanted a picture of myself in mum's dress standing in a cemetery. Not any random cemetery though. There's this one out in the country not far from where I live and it has a white picket fence. Most of my father's relatives are in it.

My absolute dream photo would be of my favourite band standing shoulder-to-shoulder on stage with their backs to the enormous crowd they attracted in London in 2002. Sadly this will never be possible because not only is 2002 a decade behind me, but the original bassist has passed on :(

Such a shame :( I can visualize in my head how stunning that would look! What band are you talking about? I have a feeling you might be talking about Slipknot but I'm not too sure :)

I am most definitely talking about Slipknot :)they are THE band that got me started on alternative music tastes, away from the mainstream drivel :)

Poisonous dart frogs in the wild.

High-Impact kung-fu shots!

Musicians jamming out.

Riots! Might get something similar. I'm considering taking a trip to a Black Friday event. I'm going to try to get in people's face and really get a good picture of the Black Friday madness that goes on here in the states.

Three will never happen because the locations no longer exist: a full shoot of Dixie Square Mall in Harvey, Illinois, and the same of Kaufdorf Autofriedhof in Switzerland.

Two others, I will likely never be able to get to photograph. Chippewa Lake Amusement Park in Ohio (unsafe and slated for demolition soon) and the abandoned Olympic sites in Sarajevo, Bosnia.

My attainable dream shoots are the boneyard at Scott & Sons Towing in Eugene, Oregon, the mostly abandoned towns of Shaniko, Rieth, Helix and Meacham in Eastern Oregon, the Fairview mental hospital in Salem, Oregon, and the Enchanted Forest amusement park near Salem, Oregon on a day toward the end of operating season, preferably a school day for kids and with a chance of rain so as to keep people away from the park. This will also include a shoot of the abandoned Thrill-Ville USA park next door if I can get my camera's zoom in through the fence mesh.

I'm pretty much stuck in my home state due to court orders... :(

I would LOVE to photograph the derelict town around Chernobyl, but for obvious reasons it's not as practical as I'd like it to be!

Thanks. Agreed that it's not practical, I did hear of something similar on Cyprus in the Turkish-occupied area, don't remember the specifics tho.
