dPS Weekly Photo Challenge – Sadness

Emotions can be easy to capture in a photograph, but sometimes you need to be in the right place at the right time to photograph an expressed feeling. This week we’re trying to freeze the emotion of sadness in a photograph – how will you do it?

Use the hashtag #dPSWeeklyChallenge and #dPSSadness in your posts on social media so we can find them.

Remember, sadness doesn’t need to be a portrait of a person, like this beautiful example below:

Emotion can also be expressed through a scene, like this example below of a landscape (Black & White tends to lend itself to the sadness emotion, don’t you think?)
