How did you do? Photography Challenge
So how did you do with the Easter Bank Holiday Challenge? I have to admit, it was tough. I think having three to complete was a bit much. I was able to complete two of them. I would love to see your end results if you was able to get time to complete them. So lets recap what the challenges were and see my photos.
So challenge number one: Black & White Photography
Nice and easy, the photo has to be in black and white which will really make the viewer focus on the detail of the image. I know a few photographers who have preferred shooting in black and white as they have told me that colour is just another distraction from the subject.
I saw this mansion and the first thing that jumped out at me was the leading line to the front door with all the flowers standing to attention. You then look deeper into the photo and can see the bench inviting you to take a seat. This photo looks lovely in colour as well but I choose this to be my Black & White photo as the buildings details look so clear when you take all the colour out.
Challenge number two: Night Time Landscape
I have loved capturing night trails in the past and Im not saying that this night time photo has to have light trails but I will be looking to find a landscape which could let me try to capture some. I find that some builds have very fancy lighting at night from my visits to Birmingham and London.
This one was the one I couldn’t achieve. I was heading to the Clifton Suspension Bridge but there was a problem with the car parking at the hotel, which I was not best pleased with, and this meant that I might not of had a place to park the car when I got back which was not going to be an option for me. I did get a photo of the Clifton Suspension Bridge in the day light which I will put below, which I made Black & White to get half way to darkness!
Challenge number three: Frame within A Frame
So if you really are struggling to get some time with your camera this weekend, then this could be the easiest challenge for you to take part in. Still life, people and the great outdoors on them family walks is sure to throw an opportunity to capture an image which is framed by something in the set up.
So the Abby in Bath had 6 foot high blue builders boarding around it when I was there, so with this photo I thought go high with out looking like Im cutting the bottom off in a weird way.
There you have it, three photos from the Easter Long Weekend which kinda all meet the Photography Challenge – Kind of I said…
