Week after week, we state that “photography has the power of lightening up our daily lives,”; and what a wonderful way of kick-starting our frantic routines by diving into some beautiful images in the comfort of our seats!
Here is our weekly wrap-up – you'll find finely curated photos from the general chit-chat blended with some creative shots from Tersha's 641st challenge on Light Painting Technique! And as you might have guessed by now, some worth-seeing shots from the Feedback Forum as well.
Photo Of The Week – May 8th, 2023
This week POTW goes to @dchester1001 and his gorgeous and seductive light painting shot.
I like this particular photo because the light painting complements the model and looks like a flying silk scarf.
What Are Our Members Up To?
Pour some coffee or tea and enjoy our cherry-picked edits for this week!
Look at this majestic sparkling beauty of a tree! And don't forget to credit the elegant model as well.
If the majestic stillness of dead trees grounded in water wasn't enough storytelling by itself, the subtle light painting makes it bliss.
“Light painted using the plain white plastic shopping bag and torch method link below the image.”
Not only does subtle light enhances the delicate nature of this beautiful flower, it also aids in telling a story about it.
“White lily painted with red light.”
Bouncy & groovy! Look closer, and you'll discover the two light sources made to draw via the wonders of slow shutter speeds.
What if we define this as a wonderful abstraction with a 90's experimental vibe? Wonderful shot!
Oh my! Medusa never looked so hypnotizing!
What a bold light painted skull!
It's hard not to feel the urge to listen to Iron Maiden after getting a closer glimpse at this rad light creation!
