As photography reaches more and more people across the globe, we get larger and larger! Our main goal at Light Stalking is to share what we know and sum it all in a wonderful place for different level photographers to nurture themselves. Today we bring you the curated best of our community’s discussion, learnings, and sharings from last week. Here you'll find some of the most interesting shots from Tersha's last challenge on Monotone and Duotone as well as some interesting discussions from our photography forum. Also you'll find a selection of images from the Tank! And last but not least, a great initiative proposed by Robert Apple.
This week our Guest Judge was Maureen Photograph @maureenphoto. Here is what she had to say about Erik's photo
“Every once in a great while, I come across an image that hits my Big Three: 1. Immediate visual/emotional impact; 2. Perfect technical execution; and 3. Meaningful subject matter. Erik Fransman's “The Birds” hits this trifecta in spades.
The composition is bold and clear. Deceptively simple, it draws you in with its clean perspective lines. Every element serves a purpose. Even the five faint towers in the distance contribute to the whole. As for the technique, it speaks for itself. It works.
The subject — birds and wind towers — is compelling, leading to debates on matters such as the place of nature vs. human-built structures, even those regarded as earth-friendly/”green.” Plenty to chew on.
Andrew Tucker's infrared image of Balboa Park in San Diego is an amazing phantasmagorical rendition of this lovely place. Reminds me of the Emerald City in black-and-white. Gorgeous and bold — I love it!
