DOGWOOD2018 PHOTOCHALLENGE WEEK 7

WEEK 7 Composition: Fill the Frame
Fill the frame with your subject, no background. You will need to get up close and personal, or use a good zoom lens

I know I know, there is a little bit of black in the background, but cropping more, would have thrown away the effect and I liked this photo the best for this week.

DOGWOOD2018 PHOTOCHALLENGE WEEK 6

WEEK 6 Vision: Alternating Rhythm
Alternate patterns of light to bring depth and rhythm to the photograph

Black light gives a total different effect.
This is the same with normal lights on it:

DOGWOOD2018 PHOTOCHALLENGE WEEK 5

WEEK 5 Wildcard: Photographer’s Choice
Capture an image on your terms; who, what, where, when, why, how … it’s all up to you. Caveat: You must tell us your intent

The night before we had a super blue moon, but when I had time to take a photo of it, it just looked like a normal moon.
So the night after I went out and took more moon photos. This is the one which I like the most.

You can find another one on my instagram page.

DOGWOOD2018 PHOTOCHALLENGE WEEK 3

WEEK 3 Technical: Full Manual
While the camera often determines shutter speed and aperture for the photographer, it doesn’t know your creative intent. This week, challenge your self to assume creative control over the camera by using full manual mode. Select a subject where varying the aperture and / or shutter speed helps enhance the composition and visual qualities of the image

I was hoping for a different kind of weather, but I had to do it with the weather we had today.
So this is the result.

DOGWOOD2017 PHOTOCHALLENGE WEEK 20

WEEK 20 Technical: Sky Overlay
Sometimes the sky just doesn’t cooperate. This week replace the sky in your image. If you need a sky to use in the replacement

Catching up with the 2017 photochallenge.
I had been thinking of sky replacement and what I wanted to do with it. But today when I walked along the river with the high water and all the reflections I took several photos which I could switch the sky and the water on. I liked this one the best.

 

DOGWOOD2018 PHOTOCHALLENGE WEEK 1

WEEK 1 Vision: Look Ahead
New year. New beginnings. New you. Look ahead. Interpret as you wish.

New year.
New beginnings. 

Actually I still need to make photos of some of the weeks from the 2017 photochallenge.
So when I read there would be a new one for 2018 I was like, okay, maybe time to stop doing those challenges.
But than I took a look and I liked the ideas for the weeks in this challenge, so here we go again.

A new year, a new photo challenge.
And hopefully making those missing photos of the 2017 challenge some day too.

For week 1 I choose a fireworks photo.
Fireworks are for me the start of a new year. Starting it with friends, with who I spent the evening and the night.
The start of many more great moments together which we share and other great moments I have with other important people in my life.

 

DOGWOOD2017 PHOTOCHALLENGE WEEK 50

WEEK 50 Technical: Full Edit
Use the SOOC shot from the beginning of the challenge and re-edit it to it’s full glory. If that shot isn’t available feel free to re-edit any of your past work

I do edit my photos, but I keep it simple.
With this photo I tried different things even black and white, but this version I liked the best.

DOGWOOD2017 PHOTOCHALLENGE WEEK 13

WEEK 13 Story: Golden Hour
The golden hour is the hour before sunset or after sunrise when the sun casts amazing golden tones. Find a way to use the golden hour to tell a story

This photo I made a long time ago.
I was waiting till maybe a photo with a better story would come along for Golden Hour, but no, still not.
So I am using this one instead

DOGWOOD2017 PHOTOCHALLENGE WEEK 42

WEEK 42 Artistic: Music
Your inspiration this week is music. This is wide open so have fun with it

I thought I would have to wait a little longer to make a music photo, since we will going to some concerts next month.
But to my surprise I won tickets for the album release party of Jacqueline. So I could make this photo there (and some more)

It was a fantastic concert, what a voice she has. Wow!
