Weekly Wonders: Unseen Moments from Our Community!


Photography has the power of lightening up our lives; and what a great thing it is to start our days by seeing 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 596th challenge on Indoor Photography at Night! And as you might have guessed by now, some worth-seeing shots from the Feedback Forum as well!

Photo Of The Week – June 27th, 2022

This time POTW goes to @valeryp and his gorgeous still life.

Valery has already proved many times that he’s the real master of still life – his compositions, lighting, and editing are simply gorgeous and painterly in the most sophisticated way.

Shooting still life requires a solid knowledge of indoor photography settings as well as lighting setups and I think all of us here could learn a lot about indoor photography from Valery!

We'd Love To Hear Your Thoughts

Also, our Feedback Forum got some nice pictures, 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.

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. Here are some of the most interesting shots shared during the last week:

The Shark Tank is a great place to learn and 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.
