FRAMES: Photo Challenge #76: Repetition

Wednesday, April 9th, 2014

Repetition is a basic photography concept. Having one umbrella in the frame is great, but having 2 or 3 or even 7 not only really makes a statement of “hey, it’s raining, ” but suddenly those umbrellas become a pattern and patterns are visually pleasing to most people.

Patterns and repetition can be found everywhere around us: the ceiling tiles above my office desk, a row of soccer balls, a yard full of dandelions, windows of an apartment complex or a line of people waiting for the ferry.

For this next challenge, I want you to show me your best photo that showcases a repeating element, theme or pattern.

The possibilities are endless. So grab your camera and get snapping.

You can email your entries to mreid@kitsapsun.com or use the handy Upload Photo Challenge Pix
link at the right side of this page. Please make sure your real life name is somewhere in the upload fields or in your email to me.

Remember, I ENCOURAGE you to shoot the photo in the week that the challenge is assigned but of course will begrudgingly accept photos taken earlier this year.

Deadline for photos will be April 30th.

(yes I realize that is only 20 days instead of the usual 30ish but I refuse to ponder stand-outs while I am on vacation so deal with it. ;) )

Those chosen as “Stand-outs” will be published in the Kitsap Sun on May 11th.

 Here are a few photographs utilizing repetition from our archives to get you thinking:

FRAMES: Photo Challenge #75: Reflections: STAND-OUTS

Wednesday, April 9th, 2014

Nice job on the reflections! As usual I loved the variety of subjects and shooting styles that were on display.

Remember, there are no winners or losers, I just pick a few shots that “stand-out” to me and ramble on about why I like them.

The following photos will be published in the Sunday, April 13th edition of the Kitsap Sun.

by Jery Yemek

Reflection By Candlelight by Jery Yemek

I love the repetition of the candles and how they fade away into just a blurry points of light in the background.

by Robby Vandenhole

by Robby Vandenhole

The reflection in this image is subtle but helps make the image much more interesting than just a shot of two flowers resting on a surface. I like the composition and the overall colors of this image.

"Cosmic View" by Deena Alley

“Cosmic View” by Deena Alley

There were a few entries with the Space Needle as the main subject and this one was favorite. I like the layers of trees and how the reflective surface is creating a kind of underwater or cosmic look to the scene.

"Ebey Landing Lagoon" by Steven R. Fisher

“Ebey Landing Lagoon” by Steven R. Fisher

This is a lovely shot with beautiful color throughout. Images of sunsets with water in the foreground are almost always dynamic images because of the ability to capture those sunset hues reflected in the water. It’s like two sunsets for the price of one.

Gray

“Gray Tide” by Jerry Mercogliano

I love the varying heights of the pilings and how the reflections of them are broken up by the ripples of waves. The composition is lovely, as is the grey “Northwest” hue of the entire scene.

Nice

“Nice View” by Ruth Elisabeth Bryant

The reflection in the sunglasses is subtle but also very important to this photo since it lets the viewer see what the subject is looking at. This frame also has a great tonal quality and is just a beautiful portrait shot.

Monday, March 10th, 2014

FRAMES: Photo Challenge #75: Reflections

It’s been a few years since we did this challenge so we are going to give it another go.

Mirrors aren’t the only place you can find reflections, there are reflections in puddles, panes of glass, shiny table surfaces, etc.

So your challenge, if you choose to accept it of course, is to show me your best shot utilizing a reflection. You choose the subject and the reflective surface.

You can email your entries to mreid@kitsapsun.com or use the handy Upload Photo Challenge Pix
link at the right side of this page. Please make sure your real life name is somewhere in the upload fields or in your email to me.

Remember, I ENCOURAGE you to shoot the photo in the week that the challenge is assigned but of course will begrudgingly accept photos taken earlier this year.

Deadline for photos will be April 7th.

Those chosen as “Stand-outs” will be published in the Kitsap Sun on the following Sunday.

 Here are a few photographs utilizing reflections from our archives to get you thinking:

———————————-

***To recap: Every month I will post a new photography “challenge” to help build on all of our current photography skills and to encourage everyone to get out and get shooting (cameras not guns). While I encourage you to shoot the challenge in the week that it is assigned, I will however accept entries taken prior to the challenge assignment date.

When you’ve got your favorite shot, login to the Kitsap Sun Your Media Site (if you don’t already have a login, you can quickly set it one up) or click the “Kitsap Frames Photo Challenge Entries” button over there on the right side of the page and upload your image to the Kitsap Frames Photo Challenge Channel (the channels run along the left hand side of the page, again if you can’t seem to get it into the channel just upload it normally and send me an email and I’ll move it).


FRAMES: Photo Challenge #74: From Above Point Of View: STAND-OUTS

Tuesday, March 4th, 2014

Nice job on the From Above Point of View photos everyone!

Experimenting with different points of views of various subjects and scenes is something that my co-photographer Larry Steagall and I do daily when we are shooting. Getting up higher than our subject or crouching down low and looking up can help us tell the story we are trying to convey in an interesting and visually appealing way. Sometimes the best photo just isn’t at eye-level with one’s subject or scene.

As usual I loved the variety of subjects and shooting styles represented in the entries. And remember, there aren’t and winners or losers, I just pick a few photos that “stand-out’ to me for various reasons and ramble on about those reasons. The following photos will be published in the Sunday, March 9th. edition of the Kitsap Sun.

 

"USS Turner Joy" by Scott Turchin

“USS Turner Joy” by Scott Turchin

Scott definitely went above (pun intended of course) and beyond for this challenge. With the use of radio control quadracopter he captured this beautiful shot of the USS Turner Joy. I love the composition and how the ship enters the frame from the corner leading your eye right to the middle of the image.

In circle by Adriana Cruz
“In Circle” by Adriana Cruz
I think this is a view that many a squirrel has seen while scampering down a tree. A common sidewalk tree shot straight on is not that visually interesting, boring even. But capturing the scene from this point of view really made this a strong, well composed and most importantly an interesting photograph.

“The Table Is Set” by Jack C. Harpel
Oh how I wish there was one lone person sitting at that table dining or looking out the window forlornly. That addition would create  an extra dimension to this still lovely photo. Person or not, I like the perspective of looking down into an empty restaurant and love the muted tones of the image.
http://232b8c62fdeb47f5f5ed-bc7023ec877dd416e84423b628e8d3dc.r80.cf1.rackcdn.com/7238be82-3d68-40b5-a7cc-d4816e7dd068.jpg
“Tacoma Car Museum” by Erinn Ward
If you like snapping photos of classic cars than LeMay-America’s Car Museum is the perfect place for that. Erinn’s photo of the first floor full of Volkswagens is really nice because the from above vantage point lets the viewer get an overall view of the place that is just jam packed with colorful shiny cars. I also think that there is probably a lot of “Slug Bug!” or “Punch Buggy!” hijinks going on, on this floor of the museum.
Paying for the daily snack by JohnWright
Paying for the daily snack by John Wright
This photo is the perfect example of how a different point of view can make the most mundane of subjects or actions visually compelling. I love the composition of the frame and the lighting on that slightly wrinkled dollar bill (which you know that machine is just going to spit out three times before accepting it).
"High Dive" by Deena Alley
“High Dive” by Deena Alley
I like the “not found in nature” colors in this frame, okay fine those bright sunny colors are most likely found in nature but on this incredibly gray and rainy day I can’t say that I remember what those sunny colors even look like anymore. But I digress, I like this downward view of Deena’s which includes palm tree shadows and little tiny chairs that just beckon one to lounge beside the pool.
