Test of Character

Postby sgtpepperband » Thu Jun 12, 2008 10:26 pm

This test only has one question, but it's a very important one. By giving an honest answer, you will discover where you stand morally.

The test features an unlikely, completely fictional situation in which you will have to make a decision.

Remember that your answer needs to be honest, yet spontaneous.

Please scroll down slowly and give due consideration to each line.


THE SITUATION:

You are in England, York to be specific.

There is chaos all around you caused by a hurricane with severe flooding.

This is a flood of biblical proportions.

You are a photo-journalist working for a major newspaper, and you're caught in the middle of this epic disaster. The situation is nearly hopeless.

You're trying to shoot career-making photos.

There are houses and people swirling around you, some disappearing into the water.

Nature is unleashing all of its destructive fury.


THE TEST:

Suddenly, you see a man in the water.

He is fighting for his life, trying not to be taken down with the debris.

You move closer... Somehow, the man looks familiar...

You suddenly realize who it is... It's Gordon Brown! You notice that the raging waters are about to take him under forever.

You have two options:

You can save the life of Gordon Brown or you can shoot a dramatic Pulitzer Prize winning photo, documenting the death of one of the country's most powerful men!


THE QUESTION:

Here's the question, and please give an honest answer...

Would you select high contrast colour film, or would you go with the classic simplicity of black and white?

I would opt for the "black and white" shot.
The severity of the situation, warrants a bleak image for the viewer to contemplate on.
It would be cheaper to print off as well, minus any colours though :roll:
Keep asking the questions
And question the answers

Colour would be a waste of ink for such a monochrome guy. What the hell would Mr Brown be doing in York?

He is also a scotsman and isn't there still somekind of ancient law in power where it is legal to kill a scotsman in York?

No-one was talking about KILLING him, just allowing nature to take it's course. And preserving the results for future generations. Quite socially responsible, I would have thought. :lol:
