Week 37 Portrait: Fashion
Avant-garde to commercial to traditional, and everything in between. The focus is the clothes this week.
Dale’s Hint: There is a lot of room this week to be creative, but it almost all requires working with someone fashionable. If you don’t know a model, ask a fashionable friend!
Finally I found a model who would stand still and let me take a fashion photo.
Took the photo during the Amsterdam Light Festival.
This was a very hard challenge for me to make the photo for, but I am happy I got inspiration when I saw this model waiting for me to take a photo of her.
Week 49 Portrait: Dancing
Whether it’s a professional dancer, or just some kids in the street. Try experimenting with slow and fast shutter speed to both blur and freeze the subject.
The young girl dancing and having so much fun while looking at herself on the screen.
Great to see her enjoying the art from UK artists John bell called Enthalpy so much.
Week 50 Landscape: Often considered one of the hardest compositions to pull off, Symmetry.
Challenge yourself this week by shooting a symmetrical landscape/urbanscape.
The skinny bridge in Amsterdam with in the background the art called Nexus from the Amsterdam Light Festival.
It is representing the 180 cultures living in Amsterdam.
I know I should have placed that art in the middle of the bridge.
But can’t change that anymore now.
Week 51 Artistic: Art
It is time to really challenge yourself. Your artistic interpretation should be art, about art. So meta
Yesterday evening we visited the Amsterdam Light festival. First we did a trip by boat and after dinner we walked the illuminade.
During the boat trip I made this photo of the art: Bridge of the Rainbow by Frenchmen Gilbert Moity.
It came out this way thanks to the rain on the windows of the boat. Extra arty this way. I like it a lot.
The Amsterdam Light Festival was amazing as always. Liked lots of light art. First time we did the boat tour and see all the lights made for the boats too.
Week 20 Landscape: Night Owl
A tripod is going to be handy this week… time to shoot a night landscape. Look for some light for the scene! Car lights, city lights, or maybe just moonlight.
Last weekend in Amsterdam visiting a concert of Milow when we walked back to Central Station I made some night owl photos.
I liked this one the best with the lights and the boat in the water.
