The Last Week Gallery: A Curated Peek Into Community’s Craft!


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 Photograph using Intentional Camera Movement! And as usual, we'll be mentioning some worth-seeing shots from the Feedback Forum as well!

Words by Jasenka Grujin

This time POTW goes to @rshattil and his shooting star.

We had many creative contenders this week, but I like this image most because it’s both clean and playful. Those wavy lines look suggesting movement are simply amazing and I love their ethereal look. Such a skillful use of ICM!

Congrats, Click.

Love this eerie and dreamlike shot; and for anyone curious, it was shot through a windshield!

Beautiful swirl-like composition, also the contrast between warm and greenish-cool tones make it perfect for a nice contemplation exercise, not to mention that nice texture in it.

Nice and colorful vibes!

Good-looking texture! Nice visual for a clean wallpaper in fact.

Now, this is an interesting portraiture approach we've never seen before!

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

Paul captured an absolutely outstanding moment with this camera the other day, beyond light complications, it is always more important to get the shot instead of getting nothing at all!

If you folks wondered about our friend Leanne, she is alright and well, just a bit spotty, that's all.

Patrick shared one of the most inspiring documentaries on street photography we've ever watched!

And also expressed some interest in analog or chemical film photography.

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 554th challenge on Levitation Photography!
