Hello there! Remember me? It has been over a year since I last hosted a Collective Shoot. Come to think of it, it’s also been more than a year since I’ve posted a photo anywhere in the Café! Hate to say it, but I’ve been in a slump. However! That ends today because I’m happy to announce that I am hosting... CS#601 – CENTER STAGE We all are familiar with the Rule of Thirds. For this week’s CS, however, I want everyone to disregard that rule and instead post photos that where the subject appears in the middle of the frame. Now, that doesn’t mean that you just point and shoot something that just happens to be in the middle of your viewfinder. Make it interesting; be creative! Anything goes, but remember, your main subject takes front and center. Here is a link that speaks to ‘center stage’ images. Front and Center: Breaking the Rule of Thirds in Photography - ALC ...and here are a couple of examples to get you started. In the interest of full disclosure, the example photos were not taken today and are for illustrative purposes only. All other photos posted must align with our guidelines of capturing images within the timeframe of the CS, which is from now until midnight, Wednesday, May 23rd. Soooo, with that – Happy Shooting!!
