It’s very close and scary

Jude’s 2020Photo Challenge #38: What’s the POV

This post contains a close up of a spider so if you have any phobias, please close this post to exit and seek help or listen to a bit of music to relax you if you would absolutely dare to go further!

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.

It’s all in the angle

Jude’s 2020 Photo Challenge #36: What’s the POV?

Here is what Jude wants us to do

This week's assignment - take a picture of a frequently photographed subject like a flower or a person's face from an unusual POV. How can you create an out-of-the-ordinary shot? 

Here are a couple of examples….what do you think…….Unusual Point of View as requested?

Which do you prefer

Jude’s 2020 Photo Challenge #34

This week's assignment - Take a photo of a subject that you like in colour and then convert to Black & White. Show both images for comparison. Which is best? Does the image rely on colour for impact.

I snuck an extra one using selective colour

Day and night

The 2020 Photo Challenge #21

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

and showing the structure of leaves

The 2020 Photo Challenge #16: Being Creative With Lines

“This week’s assignment – Converging lines. These convey a sense of depth and distance, try to have something of interest at the point where they appear to meet. Or position them on the diagonal to infer motion.”

Just a few examples from the roads travelled to get home

Jude’s 2020 Photo Challenge #14: Being Creative With Lines

I have a number of photos with lines, thanks to Becky’s Square Photo Challenge, so I sneak a few in here at the end if they fit Judes brief.

Lines, horizontal, vertical, diagonal, diminished, implied so many lines.

Do these fit? What do you think?
