Whether it’s Spring or Fall where you are, this week we finished our Spring / Fall assignment. We wanted you to show us what spring or fall was like by you. Some of the photos were very literal, while others portrayed the ideas of the season.
Our winner this week was the most literal shot in the thread by i speak in math. It may be a little corny, it may be very literal, but we liked how it combined both spring and fall. The use of the diptych really worked here, as did the black and white which really lets you focus on the subject. Our two runners up this week used images that were much more symbolic of the season, and both showed off spring really well. First up was TyCarp‘s rain of blossoms. This was just one of those “feel good” shots. The motion blur and the carefree posture of the faily really brings out the joy of a fulfilled spring day. Next up was phnee‘s brand new foal. There’s nothing like young animals to get you thinking about spring, and you could almost see how this little guy was moving, just from the photo. Well done guys!
We also started a new assignment this week, and it kicks off a week of black and white images. We’re starting it off with Black & White: Nature. As usual, a quick reminder of the rules. In order to be considered for the mini-contest, first, your photo needs to have been taken between 31 March – 14 April 2010. Second, your post must include the date that the photo was taken and the words “Assignment: B&W Nature”. Finally, your EXIF should be intact and it’s helpful if you can include some of the main points. Next week we will continue our month of black and white photography with High Contrast Black and White. In all of our black and white assignments it’s up to you whether you want to shoot in black and white or shoot in colour and convert to black and white in post. So pick what works best for you. If you’re new to using black and white, check out the first post in the thread where there are a number of links to resources to help you out in figuring out how to best use black and white photography. Good luck everyone!
