It’s been a month or so since the last weekly theme here on Photoblog and, if you’re anything like me, you’ll be itching to get shooting for the next one! Ram has been very busy working behind the scenes on the latest updates to the Photoblog world so he has asked me to help out by running the weekly theme.
We’re going to change things up a little and the theme will now be run through the Photoblog Community forum. We hope that having all your photos in a single thread is better for viewing, participation, and community building.
Each Monday the latest theme will be announced on Weekly Theme category and all you have to do is shoot for it and upload your shot onto the thread - simple! While you’re doing that, why not browse through the photos others have shared for the theme and ‘like’ the ones you feel fit the concept the best? The entry with most likes when the following week’s theme is announced is the winner!
I will be setting the first few themes but I’m open to suggestions of ideas for future themes. I’ll start a separate thread in a day or two asking for ideas so get your thinking caps on!
So, to get you started, our first weekly theme will be Transport.
We all use transport to get around, be it cars, trains, planes, bicycles or even our own two feet. Go ahead and think creatively. Pick any type of transport you fancy and see what you can do with it.
You could, for instance, pick an unusual angle to shoot from as Yoel Gonzalez did here.
Alternatively, you could play with shutter speed. In this image I picked a slowish shutter speed and panned with a cyclist to create a sense of speed.
Of course, you could also go in for the close up approach on your favourite mode of transport, like Matthew Henry:
Feel free to share some information about where you shot your themed photo and, while you’re at it, why not tell us how you created it? The whole point of the weekly theme is to get everyone out there shooting and expanding our photographic horizons. If you can tell us about your process it may inspire others to go out and experiment too.
Now go out and shoot - I can’t wait to see what you all pick to photograph!
