    Default May 2013 - photography assignment - Details

    Hi members,

    Anyone have assignment ideas for this month?

    I'll just throw out 'opposites' for the level 2 assignment - any other suggestions?

    Since I just bought my new lens, how about focal length of 200 or more

    I saw a great video the other day on Digital Rev TV about "freelensing." You take your lens off the body and hold it up to is to get a tilt-shift like image. Here's the video below.

    "Stuck at Home" Photo Idea #3: How to Shoot Freelensing Photos - YouTube

    What about "details". By this I mean rather than take a shot of a car shoot the headlight - a doorknob in lieu of a door etc. If you wanted it could be a macro shot, but need not be.

    I like the idea of details and opposites.

    I am not philosopically opposed to the 200 mm idea but i dont have that length of lens

    I like details for the regular assignment and opposites for level 2 - merging posts now.
    Thx!

    Ok members suggestion posts merged and the theme this month is 'Details'.
    I quite like Runmonty's explanation "....By this I mean rather than take a shot of a car, shoot the headlight - a doorknob in lieu of a door etc. If you wanted it could be a macro shot, but need not be."

    Ok then who will post first in this very thread?

    Level 2 assignment this month is here.

    I will go first, taken today, "Gatorscapes". It's not your normal view of an alligator.

    I've already posted it in animals section

    Well this is not entirely the effect I wanted, but I was able to salvage the photo with Photoshop.

    Not sure about the freelensing idea. I see a lot of dust in the camera afterwards lol.

    After 5 minutes of staring at it looks like bird feet. Judging from the texture I would say it's some sort of animal part.

    Fantastic start!
    AT - I dig the selective focus and the mood.
    Bambi - Nice choice of subject - dig the comp
    Realist - very cool concept and well executed.
    K.O.B. - That's whacked. Cool but whacked.
