Don’t Miss Our Latest Community Update


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 well as some creative images from Tersha's latest photography challenge on Photographing using Tracking Technique! And as usual, we'll be mentioning some worth-seeing shots from the Feedback Forum as well!

Photo Of The Week – August 2nd, 2021

Photo by Charmaine Joubert

Words by Jasenka Grujin

This time POTW goes to @joubie and her elegant shot of a big cat.

This is a great example of well-executed tracking – the subject is crystal clear and on top of that, the background and the colors make the image even bolder. The cat looks truly magnificent.

Congrats, Charmaine.

What a subtle landing we have here, gentle and exquisite framing too!

Vultures usually are photographed while standing still, almost like waiting for the perfect about-to-happen moment. Here, we have a different shot, and it is fascinating.

Beyond the movement, one can't skip the humor on the shot! “Photographs from Summer Carnival by Butler Amusements held in Sacramento California. The Hawaiian Express is going very fast whereas the carousel is going more slowly.”

This has to be one of the most tranquil shots ever.

What You Shouldn't Be Missing From The Light Stalking Community

David had some really nice fun in his backyard the other day thanks to this crawly friend. Read more about it here.

Bruce shared a soothing macro shot:

Charmaine delighted us with this lilac-breasted roller. In her words, “Tried my hand at doing High Key in camera with a very little editing in post-processing“.

Daniel captured a mystical-looking bird.

And finally, Peter shared this thoughtful photograph.

Oh, and last but not least, let's give a special shout-out to our newest member, Sarah!

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 photography's learning curve.

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:

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 550th challenge on Photograph Kids or Adults Playing Sports!
