    August 2019 theme: Caring, Caregiving or an act of compassion

    "Caring, caregiver or an act of compassion."

    There is too much negative going on in the world today, so let's get something positive going. It can be an act of showing compassion or an act of caring toward an animal, person, etc.

    Be creative with how you capture your subject. It's all up to you! Color, Black & White, HDR - however you want to edit your submissions is fine.


    IMPORTANT TO READ THE FOLLOWING:


    Let's get shooting! CREATIVITY/TECHNIQUE rules in this challenge, but there are a few guidelines:


    1. Any photo submitted for a monthly assignment must be taken using a Nikon Camera!

    2. All submissions must be taken during the month specified in the assignment thread and taken by YOU! (Please insure that EXIF is either posted with the photo or if it gets messed up, hold yourself to the honor system and add the minimum Exif data of the Camera used and the date the photo was taken to your post)

    3. Other than that, it's all up to your interpretation of the theme. Any photo will be accepted, SOOC or edited, doesn't matter.

    4. Photos must be posted in this thread to be considered. Links to photos will not be considered an entry (In other words, no Flikr, Photobucket, or similar links)

    5. Only THREE entries per member for each assignment. Please post entries separately (1 photo per post) and number the entry.

    6. Entries will be judged by the number of likes received.

    7. The top 5 shots will be displayed in a separate thread, and will be displayed in no particular order.

    8. This is intended to be a FUN challenge. No critiques unless specifically asked. Also, please limit posts to just photos and brief descriptions/titles. Any comments/discussion should occur elsewhere, PLEASE.

    As listed in other challenges, please note: NO CASH OR PRIZES will be awarded for this Monthly Assignment.

    HAVE FUN!


    *To clarify time for start of the assignment, it is 0000 UTC/GMT the first day in August (similar to the weekly challenges) and ends at 23:59 UTC/GMT the last day in August.

    I have to admit, I'd completely forgotten there was a monthly contest until I saw it listed in the "What's New?" tab.

    So....

    My step son - Army combat veteran, robotics engineer - transitioned from male to female last year. Then about a week ago she had the final cosmetic surgery to complete the transformation: breast implants, and facial reconstruction. The reconstruction involved peeling the entire face forward, like a flap, off the skull so the brow ridge bone could be shaved down, the jaw and chin bones made more delicate, a nose job, etc. The amazing thing is that there is so little pain from all that, as there are no nerve endings in bone. But it looks like she was beaten with a bag of nickels.

    She's staying with us for 3 weeks to recouperate, and while here she wants me to document her recovery with daily portrait sessions so she can construct an animated timelapse video. I'm taking headshots and seated portraits, 3-point lighting.

    This is the first picture I took in the first session, as she was getting ready to pose:
