LIGHT: Weekly Photo Challenge

LIGHT: Weekly Photo Challenge

This week your challenge is to take a picture and share it here on dPS on the theme of ‘Light’.

Image by Nikos Koutoulas

We’ve chosen the theme based upon a variety of reader suggestions on our facebook page. A number of people suggested ‘light painting’, others wanted to do something with more a ‘spiritual’ focus for Easter/Passover, while others wanted to do ‘low light’ or ‘night photography’ shots….. the list went on and ‘Light’ can be interpreted pretty much in any way that will encompass these (and more) themes.

So ‘Light’ it is.

Once you’ve taken your ‘LOW’ Photos – choose your best 1-2, upload them to your favourite photo sharing site either share a link to them even better – embed them in the comments using the our new tool to do so.

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

Also – don’t forget to check out some of the great shots posted in last weeks Low Point of View challenge – there were some great shots submitted.

Further Reading on ‘Light’

The dPS archives are packed with tutorials on the topic of light – too many really to mention them all. However here are some that might give you a little inspiration for this weeks ‘Light’ challenge:

    I wanted to share this one, it was taken with my iPhone, in the day time. I thought it was very cool how the sun make everything look black, like it was night time with the light on the water. When in fact it was taken in the morning from a moving train.

    I hope this is not posted too many times, I am having trouble getting the hang of posting here.

    My entry for Light is of the wildflower Bloodroot. I love how the sun shown through the white petals and leaves. Where would photographers be without light?

  • Jeanne April 30, 2011 12:56 pm

    My image for Light is of a Bloodroot, a wild flower found in Minnesota in the spring. When I saw the sunlight shining through the white petals and green leaves the thought instantly came " Where would we be without light". Light makes each picture unique.

    Always open for ideas, critiques to improve my photos.

    There's an issue here. I posted my URL this morning and it doesnt appear here. Last time it appeared twice. And as I can see most people also are confused and end up posting twice. Could you do something about this? Like a proper message can be displayed after hitting the Submit comment button 1st time. Now I get none.

    On the eve of Festival of Colors i.e. Holi celebrated in India. Thought of a concept to merge light, and colors. Holi is played during the daytime. So thought to capture the colors in the dark instead.

    This is a learning experience for me. The camera is a Pentax K-x, lens 18-55mm
    The subject: Red Maple flowers.
    Red Maple flowers are very small and they hang down below the leaves.
    I took the picture with a flash, the light bounced off the leaves giving the illusion of bright sunlight.

    I am new to all of this, so please bare with me.
    Pentax F-x 18-55mm lens
    I don't remember the speed. ISO or f-stop.
    I was just out taking pictures, learning the camera and I stopped under this red maple. The flowers are very small and it was dark, so I popped up my flash and took the picture to see what would happen. The leaves reflected the light back and really lit everything up, it was an interesting effect.
    I put my picture here more for everyones opinion, so I can learn more.

    thank you!!

    I took the original picture of the moon lit roof of my Great Grandparents cabin before digital cameras were available. I used Ektachrome film and had it pushed processed, f8, 10 sec, 400ASA. The full moon is only in the right position one time a year around midnight in October. The cabin is located in the mountains of Western North Carolina. And you virtually have to look straight up to see the sky with ridges all around the cabin. I could not get back far enough from the cabin to frame the whole cabin because of a ridge directly behind me. Because of the difference in lighting between the moon and cabin, I could not include the full moon and have any detail in the cabin. So, I focused with the moon just above the frame. On March the 19th of this year when the moon was closest to the earth in 26 years, I used a Canon 50D and a 600mm lens to photograph the moon. I then used Photoshop Levels, Masking and Burning to insert the Full Moon.
    I know the rules say that a picture submitted must be during the week but I thought this was a good example of what you can do with low light photography.

    I posted a link in the responses for "low" and wound up with a good number of people viewing another shot from the same day. This shot is actually one of those shots you feel good about when you capture it. It's a combanation of light rays and rain over the Gulf of Mexico. Everyone who sees it has that response we all love to hear. Check it out see what you think.
