What You Shouldn't be Missing from the Light Stalking Community
David got a package of “Liquid Light” painting tools some weeks ago, and he shared some nice abstract shots he managed to create. He also says that these tools are quite difficult to use since they are made for being used in the water. Here is our favourite from his set:
Here is a perfectly balanced seascape by Dave, and if you look closer you'll see a human figure which makes this shot a great piece of work. Whoa, look at those textures on the rocks!
Chris shared this amazing panoramic view form Dohuk Reservoir:
Robert shared this peacefully looking scene from snowy Colorado:
Erik shared a couple of shots from 2017 with us at the Snow Fun thread, and they look gorgeous!
And Frank shared these mushrooms with us. He tweaked the scene by placing a red maple leaf, making it perfect for the holidays!
We'd Love To Hear Your Thoughts
Our beloved Shark Tank is getting pretty sweet as many of you guys are 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 know it is hard for you to believe something like this, but it is actually true. We are able to help you out into becoming a better photographer at a reasonable amount of time by doing this. We truly believe in the power of criticism and feedback, and we promote it via The Tank.
Here many of our members have nurtured their own photographic knowledge by giving out elaborated critiques that go way beyond a simple emoji based reactions or “nice shot” comments. Not to mention the “what camera are you using?” ones. By receiving critiques we can find out flaws that weren't easy to spot for us before hearing an objective opinion upon our work. Here are some of the most interesting shot shared during last week on the Tank:
The Shark Tank is a great place to learn and to discuss, so please read the instructions in order the 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, so don't be afraid of sharing.
We and many other members will be more than pleased to help you out; after all, we all are in love with photography.
