This week's assignment - Shoot your subject from below. Looking up will give the illusion of smallness (the viewer). An upwards angle will make the subject seem much more important.
Thank you brave soul who has ventured into bushboys world. I found this HARMLESS Huntsman Spider in the wood pile. They don’t have webs and rely on their lightning speed to catch their prey. Huntsman Spiders can run at sixteen of their body lengths a second and that’s the slowest one of the 95 Huntsman species found in Australia.
This week's assignment - Use strong backlighting (i.e. shooting towards the light source, but do not look directly at the sun) to create a contre-jour image where the subject becomes a silhouette, OR shoot the light through flowers or leaves creating a transparent effect.
One for using the sun
One for using the Moon
and lets go inside too. I think black and white works better for this scene
