  • Project #52/37 SAME SUBJECT - DIFFERENT ANGLE

    This week's project is for you to demonstrate how the appearance (and WOW factor) can be improved by changing the angle. The winner will be the shots showing the most dramatic improvement. The subject can be anything you like - bugs,bridges, birds; whatever.

    For those that are not sure what is going on here are our basic rule/ideas.
    This is a friendly competition/project with the prize each week of fame and the chance to select the next weeks theme and winner.
    Each week a new thread with be started to announce the new theme and post your pics.
    Post two pics(or one if that is all you can muster) on the theme. The photos do not need to be award wining photos they can even be from a phone or any camera the idea is to take of photo of your interpretation of the theme not get published in a photography journal.
    The theme should be able to be photographed reasonably close to where you live, so no need to travel great distances. this way it should only take people a few minutes to participate.
    The photos should be taken within the week of the theme as the idea is to get you out there snapping not trolling through old images.
    You can post old images for inspiration but not as part of the comp/Project.
    As this is an honesty system, if you do post a photo taken outside the challenge dates, please state that its an old photo .

    If I have missed anything please post it so we can sort it out. Remember this is meant to be fun and there are no sheep stations up for grabs.
    I would encourage those watching from the sidelines to have a go, there is nothing to lose, you can only gain.

    To make it easy for the person choosing next weeks theme, just cut and paste this whole post into your new thread, and change the dates and and theme to suit.

    NOTE- Unless changed by public vote, these challenges will finish each Monday night at 8 PM

          This image was taken quite a few years ago, so not eligible.

            A few I took today.
            I made a bit of a blunder, I changed my camera the other day to shoot small jpegs so I could use one to get the shutter count of my camera, and forgot to change back to RAW. It wasn't until I was trying to post process the shots that I realised what I had done. They don't have the level of detail that I usually see in my macro shots, but they are what they are, too late now.

                Thanks Brad. I can now see why you shoot in RAW rather than JPEG. Looks like I'm off on another journey to learn how to process RAW photos.

                Cheers, Gary

                  I saw your question this morning Gary, but was leaving it til I had time to answer. Looks like you found your own, but I used one of these 2, can't remember which one I got to work, but it needed a small unmodified Jpeg....... http://www.myshuttercount.com https://www.camerashuttercount.com
                  Cheers, Brad.

                  Thanks Brad. I first tried myshuttercount and got told three times "detail not available". camerashuttercount worked fine. Results vary depending on model, even within the same brand. Well, that's another lesson learned.

                    Question Gary, are you allowed to swap lenses for the second shot?

                      Yeah, why not? Anything to make it more interesting - just has to be same subject - different angle. And have fun !

                    For this project I decided to use my Sigma 30mm f-1.4 EX DC HSM Lens. I never use this lens, probably because I'm a lazy photographer and prefer my zoom lenses. I should use it more.

                      You're right - you should! They keep telling us that the best zoom you will ever have is your feet! :-)
                      Your last shot is a great example of the value of using a different angle.

                      Cheers, Gary

                      And so ends another week - and another topic. Ironwood's insects and dee kay's "shrunken kids" showed how altering the angle can change the picture, but Grumpy John's vehicle photos from the normal type car photo in his first shot, compared to "the last thing the pedestrian saw" in his third entry, really took my eye. That's what I would call a dramatic change. Well done and thanks to all for your entries, and congratulations to John, who now picks the next topic and next week's winner.

                      Cheers, Gary

                        Thanks for the win Gary. Yes, you wouldn't want to be on the receiving end of the 100 series cruiser. Thanks to all the others who took the time to submit entries, we really need more than the same 3 or four people putting up photo's though.

                          Yes, a couple more participants certainly wouldnt go astray. Maybe a free virtual beer for for all entries might help to attract some new starters.
