Photography has the power of brightening up our lives; and what a great thing it is to start our days by checking out some beautiful images in the comfort of our homes! Here is the weekly wrap-up from Light Stalking – you'll find finely curated photos from the general chit chat, as some creative images from Tersha's latest photography challenge on Saturation: Story Telling Through Colours! And as you've already guessed, we'll be mentioning some worth-seeing shots from the Feedback Forum too!
Photo Of The Week – April 19th, 2021
This time POTW goes to @diripics and his bushfire ghosts.
The contrast between the blue sky and ocean and those burnt branches is a great storytelling tool. On top of that, the composition is powerful – the layering (blue-brown, smooth-rough) makes the scene more complex and pulls the viewer in.
What Are Our Members Up To?
Pour some coffee and enjoy our favourite shots from Challenge 534th!
What You Shouldn't Be Missing From The Light Stalking Community
Rob has captured this cute rabbit the other day:
Patrick went for a nice hike, and managed to get what we assume to be a very creative and storytelling self-portrait:
Also, Robert introduced us to a yet-unknown acronym – MFCRW; or Misty, Foggy, Cloudy, Rainy Weather.
On the contrary, Graham shared quite a sunny and sandy scene with us too!
And finally, Rob shared this fun portrait shot with his iPhone.
We'd Love To Hear Your Thoughts
Also, our Feedback Forum received some nice photographs and is clear that some of you have started building a solid photography style. This is the right place for all those people that want to grow fast as photographers. This is possible thanks to valuable and positive feedback, which is perhaps the best way in which someone can hack the learning curve in photography.
Here you'll get your work critiqued by plenty of well-intended people, but you'll also have the chance of critiquing your peers. We truly believe in the power of criticism and feedback. Many of our members have nurtured their own photographic knowledge by giving out elaborate critiques that go way beyond simple emoji based reactions or “nice shot” comments. Here are some of the most interesting shots shared during the last week:
- Dressed in April’s Finest
- Lady in Red
- Light Hole
- Crabapple Blossoms in Low Key
- Open Wide
- Flinders St Station, Melbourne
- Tattered Tulip
- Bars in Brilliant Color
- Triptych of Yucca
- Music at the Beach
The Shark Tank is a great place to learn and to discuss, so please read the instructions in order to 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. We'll be more than pleased to help you out; after all, we all are in love with photography. Also, don't forget to participate in our 535th challenge on Create Emotion with Saturation!
