A Challenge!

5 posts in this topic

This one is for the forum pro's. I think it would be great. I always try to mimic your ideas and shots, Angles, setting, light etc. but always forget something. I would like to challenge you forum photo pro's. For example only, Steve you like the woods, BIF and nature, what do you not like to shoot either because it does not interest you or perhaps you never get the results you want, Take as much time but only shoot 1 picture then post it here with out Photo shop or any other program. Then disclose what you forgot to do or what you would do different after looking at it. I think this will be fun and rewarding to everyone here. Only critique your own shot. P.S. why you do not see any of my shots is I am at work when reading this site and I am completly comp stupid!

machohorn, sounds like that could be fun. Well, sort of. smile

I'll have to do some thinking about it, though. There's really no kind of photography that I don't like doing.

And of course, what you're asking removes some of the tools we use to make our art. Kind of like walking naked through the park during a family reunion, you know? Hard to hide that belly when there's no shirt over it. gringringrin

And anyone who has ever sold a photo or photo product they've created should be considered a pro for the purposes of this exercise, OK? If I'm going to walk naked through the park, I'm going to want company. Oh, wait, that didn't come out quite right. shocked

LOL atta boy for the challenge!, Steve take who ever with you or got go it alone. This is open to everyone but I want to push you guys (and gals)a little.for example Like look at a tar road, not the tree's, snow fog deer, just the tar, looking straight down what do you see and what could you capture that would make it special, the way the lines are painted?, paint drips that no one see's at 60 mph. to every one else it's just a road.

Yes, that's a good example of what a photographer is supposed to do all the time -- find something outrageous, beautiful or in some way remarkable in the commonplace.

We'll see how long it take me. Might be tomorrow, might be next week. smilesmile

    • The past week has had me having multiple close calls and missing a brute at 45 yards.  Tonight I talked my dad to give it another try and there were birds in the field when we got there.  Birds ended up leaving as we tried to sneak in.  A short 20 minutes later they were back and we watched and worked the big group of toms and hens for more than 2 hours before we got one to commit.  Dad shot him with his 20 gauge at 48 yards,(this thing shoots an awesome pattern).  The 3 year old was down and only flopped a few times.   Nice 1+ inch spurs, 10" beard and heavy.  A good evening for sure!
    • Sorry to disappoint guys, but this tom was not my first bird of the season. Apparently that's part of the rules. The score won't count towards the team. I don't have any measurements for the jake I shot so we will have a zero from me.    At least my freezer is full. 
    • Way to  go 1957 !! Congrats!!
    • sugar is not a drug. 
    • Another good day today out on Superior ,,,, Had my first double and triple in the new rig today ,,, the day didnt start out with perfect weather but the fishing more then made up for it ,,, The mud  covers a lot of water but fishing the tea  colored water and edges of the mud paid off ,,, the cohos grew 5 inches  from eating this years smelt,,,, had some go 23 inches today 
    • Say no to drugs, like sugar.  Yes, sugar is a drug.
    • I won't be able to post the scores for this week until maybe Wed. so if someone else wishes to do so feel free to do it. In fact for the entire summer season I'm going to be pretty much hit and miss. So don't count on me the lake is calling and I have no computer there. My scores will drop like a rock unless luck prevails.
    • That should make things interesting
