This week we made use of Shadows in our assignment. The use of shadows can add depth and dimension to a shot, or even an entirely new element. Our winner this week was fbroschart‘s Eggs and Whisk. This shot was an easy favorite among the judges this week. The way the shadows on the eggs mimicked the shapes on the plate, combined with the curves of the egg created a great shot. But not only that, the shot made great use of depth of field, contrast, and composition. Our first runner up was duna‘s Fabric Ceiling. While the shot nearly has the look of leaves, it was actually a fabric ceiling at Denver International Airport. The shadows really helped to add dimension to this image and create an almost abstract shot that focused on shape and tone. And last, but not least was tj6016‘s Killer Shadow. We’ve all seen the horror movies where you see the shadow coming up behind the victim, well tj6016 put that theme to good use and used the shadows to create a story, showing just how effectively shadows can change a shot.
We also started our Collections assignment this week. Most of us collect something, whether it’s seashells, coins, or dust, we want you to show us your collections in a creative and interesting way. As usual, a reminder of the assignment rules. First, your photo must have been taken between 23 September -7 October 2009. Second, your post must include the words “Assignment: Collections” and the date that the photo was taken, otherwise we will not include it in our considerations. Finally, the EXIF should be intact and it’s useful if you can include some of the main points (e.g. camera, lens, ISO, shutter speed, and aperture) in the body of your post. Next week’s assignment will be Bokeh which is the out of focus area in your image when you use a shallow depth of field.
