We doubled it up this week with our Two for One assignment. The goal was to take two photos and change one key element between them. Our winners this week were people who used this technique really effectively to not only demonstrate a difference, but to use that difference in a creative way.
Our winner this week was Joey the girl‘s shot of the water faucet (which also goes to show that even everyday household objects can be interesting). The key element that Joey the girl changed was the white balance. In the first shot, the white balance was set to auto, while in the second, it was set to cloudy. Our first runner up was Foto Phool‘s polar shift, which was a shot of a waterfall with the polarising filter turned 90 degrees in the second shot, which really cut down the glare and showed how effective rotating your polarising filter can be. And last, but not least wasZoomZoom‘s North and South America. In this shot, the point of focus changed between the two shots, so while the first figure was in focus in the first shot, the second figure was in focus in the second. The shot not only created a bit of humour, but also showed how changing what you focus on can change the meaning of a scene.
Whether the weather. As usual, an overview of the rules. If you wish to participate in the mini-contest to have your photo featured on the blog, your photo needs to have been taken between 19 August – 2 September 2009. Your post in the assignment thread must include the words “Assignment: Weather” and the date that the photo was taken. Don’t forget to include the date, we’ve had to exclude a lot of great shots that would’ve otherwise been considered. And finally your EXIF should be intact, and it’s helpful if you can include some of the main settings used to take the picture (shutter speed, aperture, ISO, etc).
Next week’s assignment will be “School Days”.
