Measurement is the assignment of a number to a characteristic of an object or event, which can be compared with other objects or events. The scope and application of a measurement is dependent on the context and discipline.

Get creative :)

Black and white – results

Wow……..a great week with 10 entries.

Welcome back to so many of you who have not entered for a while, it would be good to understand what it was about this challenge that inspired you to enter or whether life just didn’t ‘get in the way’ as it does with me every week!

Massive congratulations to Jonathan and his wife on the recent birth of their daughter :)  I know it was a few weeks ago now!

Black and white

For so many people making a photograph black and white is simple the press of an edit button (**I can hide in shame at this remark!) without really thinking how to or what makes a good image.

The following is some of what should be considered:

  1. Contrast is your friend
  2. Flat light can have a lot to offer
  3. Black makes white brighter
  4. Graphics make bigger drama!
  5. Have a ‘clean’ white and a ‘clean’ black
  6. Exposure is your friend, also
  7. Filters can make it easier
  8. Which software you use to create your image
  9. Levels and curves

I’ve unashamedly taken the above considerations from the following website if you want to take a look for more information…..

This  website is also a good read, as I am sure many others are too.  If you come across any please don’t forget to share the links with the rest of us.

Usual rules apply; photos should be taken between now and next Tuesday 29 September with a link uploaded to this website or email sent in by Noon (12:00) for me to be able to publish the results that evening.

Frame within a frame – results

Well done to everyone who entered this week :)

I really must get my camera out and start shooting these challenges too……

Villasapphobeth I’m sorry I haven’t included your photo I was not sure whether it was taken after the challenge was set as your narrative suggests it is an old photo.

Frame within a frame

Happy Tuesday, everyone :)

This weeks challenge is a composition challenge in that you need to frame your subject in the frame of your shot!  This could be any of the following

Or any other frame within a frame you can find like this one or this one!

Hope there is some inspiration there……

Have a great week and please remember entries should be in by 12:00 noon on Tuesday 22 September 2015.

New Worlds

Ah, tis the season of starting school, returning to the daily norm and slowly sinking into the reality of colder weather… Falala lala, lala la laaaa….

But not today fellow photo-challengers! This (slightly shorter) week is about finding and embracing a New World! Be it a picture from a perspective you’ve never delved into before, a place you’ve never been or even an actual telescopic picture of a world that is yet to be discovered (extra brownie points for that!), this challenge is all about discovery and the enlightenment that comes with it :)

Entries in by noon next Tuesday 15th of September! Hopefully we’ll get results and a challenge out on time next week 😀

Architectural photography – results

Evening everyone :)

I am sorry that it is Wednesday evening and I am only just getting round to posting the results.  Thanks all for your patience – it’s been a week of balancing a teething 6 month old and being back at work full time!

Please try and take the time to look at other peoples pictures and comment on them.  Last week I felt ever so lonely as I was the only one who commented…….

Architectural photography

Have opted this week for a slightly more technical challenge than I have been setting recently.

Rather than me ramble on have a look at what wiki has to say…..Architectural photography

Try to use this challenge to really think about your composition.

Entries to be in by Noon on Tuesday 8th September, please.

As always, have a great week and remember to have fun!
