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 Capture an Urban Portrait! And as usual, we'll be mentioning some worth-seeing shots from the Feedback Forum as well!
Photo Of The Week – October 4th, 2021
This week it was easier to choose our POTW than usual.
There were many portraits in the thread but just a few of them were really urban.
Charmaine’s portrait of a young man with headphones is such a perfect example of a modern, urban portrait, something that would turn heads on Instagram. The color scheme, textures, and overall vibe of this portrait create a truly urban impression.
What Are Our Members Up To?
Pour some coffee and enjoy our favorite shots from Challenge 558th!
What You Shouldn't Be Missing From The Light Stalking Community
Beth Shared a fantastic landscape shot from the Tetons:
Jasenka is having a great time shooting with her vintage Helios 44-2 lens, and she simply can't get enough of the beautiful bokeh it produces:
Also, Kim got serious and is taking the film back, and we can't help to be a bit jealous about it!
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:
- 21st Century Still-Life
- A Glimpse of the Heavens
- Wildlife Milky Way
- Volunteer Free
- Street Flowers
- Yellow garden spider with prey
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 559th challenge on Urban Street Photography!
