View Through the Door: Quiet Trusted Partners
Every day many thousands of planes take off and land all over the world. The pilots and first officers who guide these magic tubes, that whisk us anywhere in hours, do so quietly and professionally. Apart from a few announcements from the flight deck, we don't know their names. But we trust them with our lives.
At any given point of time, we're all doing something, so let's capture that this week and shoot An Activity. This week's challenge is deliberately open-ended and is there for you to make the most of your creative juices. Basically, think of a verb, something ending in -ing. Cooking, Hiking, Fishing, Painting, Building A Snowman, Woodworking, Vacuuming, Riding, Contemplating, Shooting Pool... see what we mean? You could freeze the action with a high shutter speed or go slow and capture something entirely different. There's so many different things to try - shoot from a low angle. Perhaps, take an environmental portrait of someone hard at work or play. Take a shot of your area's local sports team or just some kids on a swing aiming for the sky. Capture a moment in time that depicts someone (it could even be an animal) doing something. Set the tone of the image to add more depth and emotion to your shot. Think about why you want to capture this particular scene and how you can best convey that to your viewer. How ? Make good choices with your lens, composition, lighting and of course, how you edit your image in the end. I feel this week we're going to have even more fun than normal - shooting and seeing the many different things Framers from around the world will click.
