Beautiful Composition – Rule of Thirds!

Thank you to all the photographers below for sharing their beautiful images with us today! They’re amazing!

This week on Learn by Doing Photography we practiced the Rule of Thirds. A guideline for composing images by dividing it into nine equal parts and placing your subject on on one of the intersecting lines. It can create a very strong balanced image. Of course all rules are made to be broken, but it’s good to know the basics first!

If you’re curious if your picture is following the rule of thirds, check out this awesome tool James Morley created.  You can add one of your pictures to the group or just view it and see how the rule of thirds works with your picture.

Featured Photo Wednesday – Pekka Nikrus

This is such an inspirational story… To look inward and see who we are, to see what we can see, to take that and create magic exactly the way we see it. So take a moment to think internally who are you, what do you bring to photography that no one else can, we are each special in our own way… be you…

I couldn’t stop when I looked at this weeks featured photo, I had to keep going and look at the entire set. Incredibly amazing photographs! Thank you for sharing with us Pekka!

If you have a photo you would like to have featured, please email me at submissionsatdigitalcamfandotcom . Every Wednesday I’ll spotlight a new photo. Don’t forget to include links to your photography site, Flickr, twitter you get the point, we want to be able to see your other work! For more detailed info on how to, check out the Featured Photo detail page!

Pekka Nikrus

I got my glasses when I was about ten. From there it took over thirty years before I was hit by the thought of thinking about my myopia as something else than a limitation. One evening, as I was out walking with my Nikon D300, it suddenly hit me. What good could there be in being nearsighted? I looked around me over my glasses and concentrated in what I really saw. I saw colors. I saw lights. I saw an abstract environment as if I was totally engulfed by bokeh. And I loved it! Suddenly I realized that I can see, without the help of my camera, what would look good as a blurry image.

Exploring this new understanding of my vision disorder lead to a whole lot of experimenting. One project, which I call Nearsightseeing, started out as documentation of places in my hometown as I’d experience them without my glasses. I shot multiple exposures in twilight to catch a rich tapestry of blurry tones and light bubbles including both a bit of natural light and urban artificial lighting. Lazy as I am, I usually don’t carry a tripod with me so I take full use of the vibration reduction on my lens, which also compensated for my shaking, when I shot photos in the cold of darkening winter evenings.

This particular image from January 2010 is one of my favorites because I find it to be a very beautiful rendition of a district in Helsinki which, viewed with good eyes or through glasses, can at times feel quite gloomy.

I post a lot of images to my Flickr account, but also collect some bit pieces to a Behance portfolio and my photoblog. Also I have a Facebook page to which I collect most of my visual web presence.

Backlighting is the Best!

Backlighting a photo can really bring life to a photo. It gives it that extra pop, that extra something special within a photo. All these photographers did such an amazing job capturing the backlight, composing their picture and creating an amazing image! Thanks for sharing with us!

A Bokeh of Beauty!

These are my favorite, a beautiful image with a shallow depth of field. A Bokeh of beauty! These photographer’s are amazing. Taking the time to stop and capture the image in the most creative way! The light in the background, the composition – love!

One of the things I love about photography is it helps us slow down, to look around the world we live in and see the beauty that surrounds. Thank-you for sharing these moments with us!

Inspiring Flowers all on a Black Background

Inspiring Flowers all on a Black Background!

Inspiration with just a simple black background. Photographing a flower with a colorful background or outside gives it such a different look and feel than when you simply use a black background. It’s all about the way the light hits the flower and that striking black background that makes these photographs so powerful. These photographer’s did an amazing job! No distractions of background and other subjects, simply the beauty of the flower shinning through! Thanks so much for sharing with us today!

Amazing Abstract Photography

Time to be inspired!

One thing I love as I dive more and more into photography, is that I see things that I might not have noticed before. When you step over a puddle you notice the reflection. When the sun is setting you start to notice how the shadows create beautiful contrast. When you’re in hurry you don’t notice these things, but when you slow down even the smallest thing becomes beautiful.

These photographers did an amazing job capturing the smallest detail, details that we don’t notice as we walk by in hurry. They slowed down, looked, composed found colors and captured something amazing, thanks so much for sharing with us today. Now it’s your turn to slow down and look for the beauty that is all around us on this week’s assignment – capturing abstract photography!
