***Latest Assignment: Contre-jour (27 Aug - 10 Sep)
Contre-jour is a french term meaning "against the light". Take a photo that exploits lighting and plays with under and over-exposed areas to dramatic effect - in other words, the opposite of HDR approaches, which try to compress the range of contrast.
Here is an example I took in Santiago de Compostela when I visited back in March:
Because my challenge is lighting I thought I'd fight it and do something about it and work with this lighting stuff...have no clue, I do join as many groups as I can on Flickr and Facebook but I'm going to beat this bad boy...Lighting and natural lighting is so beautiful if you get it right so the more I practice the better I'll be on a whole and then just keep getting better and better and better, I'm sure you get my point!!!
So I'm going to do some searching around and see what I can find around here so off I go and hopefully the next time I post I'll have what I need and then next weeks assignment is early part of the day, sunrises, work commutes, breakfast, etc. Shots for morning should be from between 3 September and 17 September.
Go ahead do the assignment it'll challenge you as a photographer and get better and better!
