be careful on how u are gonna go about shooting this. one wrong move, and u will end up being very degrading on groups of people in your photograph.

its a fine line, between highlighting poverty issues and simply labelling people. this takes a lot of research, interaction with subjects and getting their permission for photographs. its only ethical if we ensure that whateva we portray is true and not simply a misrepresentation/ random labelling. i'm considering this kind of genre to be photojournalistic actually.

my 2 cents

I completely agree with you that its a fine line.

However, to shoot with permission or to shoot from a distance without interfering with them is totally a personal choice of the photographer! In either instance it is the responsibility of the photographer to ensure that the subjects are not exploited - for the lack of a better word.

cheers

I wish to support but I don't what kind of photo they want? Anything picture well do? What is 300dpi? Don't mind to explain cause I seldom use that instead of pixel.

Well it is very clearly explained in the theme what they are looking for.

Show casing financial and emotional poverty amongst the elderly in singapore.

Hope this helps

300 dpi is the dots per inch u set this when u post process the image. If its at 72 dpi you cant print too big else the image will be pixelated.

some tips to those who are joining.

Do's
- To get a good shot, you should get to know your subject. Talk to him or her, find out more about him/her, chat with him/her, let him/her be comfortable with you then ask for a permission to take photograph of him/her. I am sure these elderly will be most willing to talk to you (as not much ppl including their family do!) if you can show to them u are sincere.

Don'ts
- Dun take spy shoots using zoom lens and make your subjects uncomfortable
- Dun take any shoots if your subjects declines to be photographed
