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

    • Thanks for bringing that to my attention.  I am now going to add this quick connector to the coax side and plug that into the wall plate for quick on and off.
    • I have had the Ion for two season's.  It works as good if not better than any auger I have previously owned.  The battery did not show any signs of degradation in it's second season,  I will soon see what the battery does in season three.    I use it in a 9 hole wheel house, opening 7 of the holes everytime I have gone fishing.  Additionally, I go outside the house and always pop open a half dozen extra holes.  I have never had to worry about the charge when setting up for each trip. The battery (older version) does all of those holes including reversing the auger on each hole to remove as much slush as possible.  It usually runs longer in reverse than it does drilling the hole.    I often intentionally drill old holes when I am outside to see if I can experience any lose in power or battery life and haven't had any complaints yet.   20 plus inches of ice hasn't change any of these results.   Since the new battery also works in the older version of the auger I was thinking about buying the newer battery but after some thinking about it there isn't any reason to spend the $200 for a backup that I don't currently need (knock on wood).
    • I was gonna go catfishing but then I remembered I had all my teeth 
    • Why do you guys take pictures with the bait?
       

       
    • No beer in a boat has to be the 2nd stupidest law in the history of the world next to when Wisconsin had the no trolling law   I believe he was talking more about the coverage than the care.
    • The new X battery does work with the previous model for sure.  It gives you the same +60% efficiency with either unit.
    • If you plan on reopening any holes, go with the Ion.  The Lazer blades don't reopen holes  
    • I am planing on getting an electric auger and I was trying to decide between the new ION X or strikemaster lithium lazer.  I know no one has experience with the new Ion but wondering how the older models have been holding up (does the batteries still hold a good charge) and kinda the same think with the strikemaster.  I have seen the electra lazer and not to impressed with it that is why I am wondering if the lithium is any better.  Hope you guys can help    Thanks Bobby
    • If I am thinking of this right you will plug that directly into your camera and have a coax cable running to the wall plate then? If that is the case the only thing I can think of is it will be a pain to plug and unplug the wire when you want to use it. If you are keeping it hooked up all the time then I don't see a problem.
