I hope everyone is having a good week and looking forward to the weekend as I am.
For this week’s Friday Photo Share I thought I would discuss a couple of photographs from last week’s Atlanta Photowalk that I have submitted as entries in two different contests, one for a photography club and one for the photowalk itself.
Now, I am definitely not an expert photographer but I want to improve my skills and I think one of the ways to do that is to take photographs with a purpose in mind and then get feedback on them. I think if we want to improve as photographers it’s important to get unbiased feedback on our photos. Entering contests or competitions is one way to get feedback.
This first image is the one I submitted to the photography club, The Southeastern Photographic Society. They have a number of get togethers and field trips as well as a monthly meeting. Each month has a theme for photographs that can be entered in a contest. Members can enter a print or digital image in the contest. During the meeting, the photos are displayed and critiqued and then the winners are picked. The theme for October’s meeting (which I’m going to right after I post this) is “patterns and repetition”. With that in mind I was on the hunt for images that could fit that definition. During the photowalk I found a few things that could qualify but I think this image is the best one I had:
