Another weekend means that we’ve finished up another assignment and last week we finished up our Wide Angle. Wide angle lenses can really provide an interesting and different perspective. This may be because it often shows us more than we typically see or it may be because of the distortion that you get that changes the image. We had many strong images this week, but our winner was BJLPhoto‘s “Go Giants”. This one makes us almost feel like we’re there. The soft colours give it a nice, timeless feel. Then the use of the wide angle gives you an idea of the huge crows, while the people in the foreground help draw you into the emotion. All in all, nicely done. Our first runner up was imagebox67‘s “Shot Tower Museum”. We have no clue what this is, or even really how it is that it looks like this. But what we do know is that it is the kind of shot we kept coming back to. There’s something very interesting about it, and the wide angle really helps to provide an interesting perspective.
faesher‘s “Firewiped”. Oh, you can almost feel the heat coming off of this shot, and that’s where the wide angle really helped. You feel close to it, adding to the drama. Well done everyone!
We also started our Treasure assignment. You might take a photo of something that you treasure in this world, or maybe you’ll take it more literally. But however you do it, wow us with your shot. As always, a quick reminder of the rules. First, your photo must have been taken between 6 – 20 October 2010. Second, your post must include the words “Assignment: Treasure” and the date that the photo was taken. Finally, your EXIF should be intact, and it’s useful if you can include some of the main points like camera, lens, aperture, shutter speed, etc. Next week we will start our next assignment, Journey. But start taking those pictures now. You might consider this a something related to actual travel or through a process, but either way, consider how you will get this message across in a photograph. Best of luck everyone!
