Week after week, we state that “photography has the power of lightening up our daily lives,”; and what a wonderful way of kick-starting our frantic routines by diving into some beautiful images in the comfort of our seats!
Here is our weekly wrap-up – you'll find finely curated photos from the general chit-chat blended with some creative shots from Tersha's 643rd challenge on Capture Moving Light! And as you might have guessed by now, some worth-seeing shots from the Feedback Forum as well.
Photo Of The Week – May 22nd, 2023
This time POTW goes to @dchester1001, our master of light painting!
The image is a wonderful example of a rather creative use of light and long exposure. The atmosphere is dynamic and makes us wonder about the process and settings behind this image.
What Are Our Members Up To?
Pour some coffee or tea and enjoy our cherry-picked light drawings for this week!
Now that's what we call the speed of light! With bold tones, it almost looks like a fine painting as well.
This one did made us laugh!
Noticed the two colors captured in this shot? Steel wool & magnesium both produce a unique hue of light!
This shot truly makes the concept of “fire rain” something easier to imagine for sure!
And speaking of rains made out of fire, what about a darker look into a plasma ball?
Fireworks are one of those fascinating and challenging subjects in photography, and despite their popularity, we had never seen something as botanical as this shot!
This colorful piece of contemporary work deserves to be titled “$7.85”!
Fireworks through the trees!
Flying close to the ground – only horses can do it!
