Zoom: Weekly Photography Challenge

Zoom: Weekly Photography Challenge

0Comments

Image by Steve Jurvetson

Your challenge this week is to take and share an image with the dPS community with the theme of ‘ZOOM’.

You can interpret this theme any way that you wish.

  • you might want to followup on this weeks post on using a Zoom Lens as a Compositional Aide and get your telephoto zoom out
  • you may wish to experiment with the zoom effect and shoot some long exposures while zooming a lens in or out
  • you might like to shoot a moving subject – something that is ‘zooming’
  • our you might have some other way of capturing an image that fits the ‘zoom’ theme

Once you’ve taken your “Zoom” image, upload it to your favourite photo sharing site and either share a link to it below or embed it in the comments using the our new tool to do so. Please note it sometimes takes us a while to approve comments with images as there’s a moderation queue – particularly over the weekend.

If you tag your photo on Flickr, Twitter or other sites with Tagging tag it as #DPSZOOM to help others find it. Linking back to this page might also help others know what you’re doing so that they can share in the fun.

PS: don’t forget to check out some of the great photos shared last week in the ’10 Meter’ challenge.

    OK. I admit the “zoom” part is pretty subtle. If you look at the little fly’s right wing you can see he’s trying like the dickens to “zoom” out of there. A losing battle I might add.

    I tried real hard to get a shot of my dog running like that excellent, excellent one of the greyhound higher up in this thread. I guess I’m not quite there yet.

    I know the photo is a little soft. I had to shoot this standing on a chair using Live View mode with the camera extended above me all the way at arm’s length because this little drama was being played out on my ceiling.

  • Brisbane City with a different view 🙂

  • This photo was taken at Shaw Fest 2010 located on Shaw Air Force Base in Sumter, SC. Here the pilot is “zooming” across the flight line to land on the trunk. Normally, he can do this in 1-2 tries, this year he took several passes to actually land the plane on the truck/van.

  • Here’s a car that sitting still looks like it is moving fast. If you like it please comment and or give a critique to my other photography on my Flickr stream.

    This is a picture I took just over a year ago while in Australia.
    I used the zoom as a “compositional tool” but I only realised I had done so this week, thanks to an eye opening article 😉

    I have been a member of this website for a while now but haven’t been uploading pictures…I plan to start being more active now. This is the best Photography website i have found so far and i look forward to every email update that I recieve.
    Keep up the good work

    This challenge definitely shows what a beginner I am. I did immediately think of a shot I caught of a bride zooming down the isle after her vows, and then I tried the "zoom effect" this evening but with a point and shoot, and no ability to zoom while the shutter is open (to my knowledge), it was harder that it sounds!!

    This photo was taken at Redondo Beach, California. I was about half a mile from the fishermen on the end of the Pier and used a Nikkor zoom at 200mm to capture the details. This was taken after the sun had set, which allowed for the beautiful uniform background pastel tone of the sky. Tripod was essential to steady the camer as the light was fading fast!
