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
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.
What Are Our Members Up To?
Pour some coffee and enjoy our favorite shots from Challenge 549th!
What You Shouldn't Be Missing From The Light Stalking Community
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 Mood
- Glamour Retouch
- Eye in the Sky
- Female Cardinal in Backyard
- Hanging Around
- B&W Dahlia
- Some Minimalism
- Female Cardinal in BackYard
- Colourful drummer at Diwali
- Help me Learn
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!
