The Last Week Voyage: Navigating the Nooks of Our Network’s Nurtures


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 – where you'll find finely curated photos from the general chit chat, as well as some creative images from Tersha's latest photography challenge on Geometric Photography! And as usual, we'll be mentioning some worth-seeing shots from the Feedback Forum as well!

Photo Of The Week – September 27th, 2021

Words by Jasenka Grujin

This week POTW goes to @timothy-a.

There were many great candidates, but Timothy is the true master of b&w geometric shots. The way he frames scenes and notices interesting patterns or interplay of light and shadow is simply magical.

Congrats, Timothy.

What Are Our Members Up To?

Pour some coffee and enjoy our favorite shots from Challenge 557th!

Almost a rule of thumb, clean compositions enhance geometrical shapes in our photographs.

What a comfy space, we only hope that the stool was made in a good way…

Nice view of the Mortlock Wing of the Adelaide State Library.

Beautiful cascade effect in this what appears to be a building facade perhaps.

Interesting crop, and vibrant colors.

Interesting juxtaposition of two subtle compositional elements: first, we have the tension given by the leading lines; then, the soothing vibe resulting from the hazy light bathing the whole frame. Beautiful!

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

Beth shared a couple of crispy shots of the waterfalls downstream from bridal veil falls in the Columbia river gorge.

Like many of us, Philip is going through that phase in which we usually find ourselves stuck and lacking inspiration. Take a swing by if you have any useful hacks he might use to overcome the unfortunate creative block.

Daniel brought a debate that still deserves some critical thinking and reflection. Please take some time to read his thoughts and if you feel like it, give your opinion on the debate.

And last but not least, we want to welcome Richard to our place!

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 558th challenge on Capture an Urban Portrait!
