    Week ending 20/01/17 Five

    Welcome to this week’s weekly challenge, the theme of which is Five


    Anyone is welcome to join in!!

    *The rules of the competition are posted below*


    Here are also the next four challenges in the Weekly challenge.





    3. Week ending 20/01/17 Five

    4. Week ending 27/01/17 Hats

    5. Week ending 03/02/17 Bottles

    6. Week ending 10/02/17 Birds


    The Weekly Challenge competition is a fun to enter weekly run thread where a new photographic subject is posted each Saturday and you have a week to complete the photographic theme, the closing date of which will be indicated in each weekly thread posted.

    You are able to join in at any time during the year, just post into the thread to get started.

    If you are not able to post in that week, it does not mean you cannot join in the following week.

    You can also post an image that is relevant from your archives if you cannot get out to do the picture in that week.

    It is a fun competition, and there are no prizes, just a thread to get us out taking pictures. The competition runs for a year, and at the end of the year, it will start again with new themes.



    info: a JOKER week is a subject that is suggested by a member of the forum.

    This was a lot more tricky than I thought it would be to do. Not 100% perfect, but thought it would be so easy to put the cam on tripod and use the flip screen in liveview and autofocus and take with a remote. First tried with the palm of my hand and fingers in the air (like a high five) but every one oof (either missing focus or too shaky a hand) In the end had to get a small coffee table, and manually focus in liveview on an object, then replace the object with my fist at the prefocused point. Perhaps should have lifted my knuckles slightly. Anyway.....

    This is my first attempt at a textured background, or as I like to call it, the conservatory floor!

    I wanted to start this game earlier in the year but glad to try and get into it again. I did take a Reflection photograph last week but it was awful :(

    First go into this foray and hopefully my photography will start to improve as that's why I want to do the challenge. I've been really enjoying the recent photographs - too many to comment on but great to see a large response.

    Once again, great stuff all. Been so busy decorating (a 14' high room!) haven't had much time to get the cam out.

    You mind yourself on those steps. Are you hanging wallpaper as well?

    I'm using a small triple extension ladder, I have to remember that I'm sixty nine and not nineteen! So, I roller just a couple of feet to the right....then move the ladder left, it's a lot of getting up and down, so good exercise, but quite frustrating. No wallpaper, it's my 'studio'. I'll publish some pics in a few days when I'm finished, I might even be able to tenuously work it into The Weekly Challenge, LOL.
