Here’s What You May Have Missed From The Light Staking Community This Week


Being able to share with the world the little things that we know about photography makes us extremely joyful. I personally believe that we live in an amazing moment in time in which we can access knowledge with an immediacy and ubiquity, unlike any human being before us.

As our passion for photography grows every day our community keeps growing too. We feel that with all these efforts we are adding value to this passion that is photography and that feeling is just priceless.

Today we are bringing you some highlights from our community from last week. Here you'll find some of the fantastic shots from Tersha's last challenge on Emptiness as well as some interesting discussions from our photography forum. Also, you'll find a great selection of images from the Tank!

Photo Of The Week – April 1, 2019

Kent is back from his travels and picks up photo of the week. This is a super fun pick and what made it even more special was that John told us how to do it too!

Dave is happy about spring, and we are sure that Cider is even happier. Here he shares with us the first blooming fellow from the season.

We'd Love To Hear Your Thoughts

We are sure that you are totally with us on this one, the hardest thing in photography is to actually keep improving, especially after many years have passed. But we've found that after practicing, constructive criticism is the best possible way to become a better photographer.

People are able to nurture their own photographic knowledge when they give out elaborated critiques that go way beyond a simple like or a “nice shot” comment. And by receiving critiques we can find out flaws that weren't easy to spot for us before hearing an objective opinion upon our work.

In order to respond to this logic, we keep a special place exclusively intended to work around that idea, and it is called The Shark Tank. Don't worry about the name, we were just fooling around. Here are some of the most interesting shot shared during last week on the Tank:

The Shark Tank is a great place to learn and to discuss, so please read the instructions in order the get a better critique experience. Share your comments, opinions, and doubts on any or all of the images above. We also will be delighted to see some of your own images. Don't be shy, critiques are given to photographs and not photographers, so don't be afraid of sharing.

We and many other members will be more than pleased to help you out; after all, we all are in love with photography. Don't forget to participate in the newest challenge published by Tersha on Mothers and Flowers. Please remember to join our friendly photography community if you haven't done already.
