Sometimes less is more. Create a shot using simple elements with little embellishment.
Join us for an informal discussion of the photos submitted and judged for the Online Contest "INTENTIONAL BLUR"
This meeting is an exchange of ideas where both judge and contestants can express their vision and perception of the submitted and critiqued images,
We hope you take advantage of this opportunity to learn from each other and further your technical and artistic photography skills.
The interplay between light and shadow is among the best ways to create effects and compositions that express your artistic expression. It can be a great way to show subjects and make elements appear three-dimensional or abstract. It does not matter if you photograph people, nature, landscape, architecture, or macro; shadows play an essential role in your images.
Blur can be an important component in photography. It can be used to draw attention to the abstract, give the impression of motion, create a beautiful background, and more. This contest is to push you into going out of your comfort zone by photographing something different. There are several techniques that can be used to create intentional blur: Panning, macro, long exposure, wide apertures, muti-exposures, zooming lenses during exposure, tilting and shifting your camera, shooting light trails, etc.
Digital Challenge…Now it is your turn. I have critiqued your digital images. Some agree with my assessments...some do not. What follows is my methodology and reasons. How objective are you when self-critiquing your photographs? Can you separate your emotional connection to your image?
