Artistic Lens Compression Challenge finished on Thursday, 26 Nov 2015 So, first of all let us describe Lens Compression. Compression is a phenomenon that occurs with larger zoom lenses where background elements are pulled forward within the image, and appear much bigger than what they are. The best example I can think of is the Video "Full moon silhouette" by Mark Gee. Search for that video and be amazed. It is not trick photography, it is created by using if I recall correctly a 600mm lens with a 2x lens extender. Anyway, this week let us look at artistically applying the knowledge of compression for shots. Pull mountains closer, or trees or people. The last time I used this technique intentionally was photographing a marathon and taking a shot that made all the runners visible appear grouped together yet they were some distance from each other. Do some research and lets see what you end up with...

Its Occupational-Doctors and Nurses Challenge finished on Monday, 23 Nov 2015 Its Occupational challenge #3 This week we will look at environmental portraits of doctors and nurses. People getting on with their day job of caring for people. Remember these are portrait shots and portraits are defined as follows. A portrait is a painting, photograph, sculpture, or other artistic representation of a person, in which the face and its expression is predominant. The intent is to display the likeness, personality, and even the mood of the person. For this reason, in photography a portrait is generally not a snapshot, but a composed image of a person in a still position. Environmental portraits show the subject in their typical work surroundings.
