CS #622 - New

Discussion in 'The Collective Shoot' started by Terri French, Oct 11, 2018 at 9:12 AM.

  1. “With the new day comes new strength, and new thoughts.” - Eleanor Roosevelt

    We all love something new. This week’s collective shoot relates to the topic of “new”….new day, new life, new possessions, new experience, new resolve, new ideas, new friends, etc. The topic is as broad as your imagination.

    Original photos only, please. Post only photos taken between midnight tonight, October 10, 2018 and midnight Wednesday, October 17, 2018.

    Here are some examples but I don’t want my thoughts to limit your new ideas.

    New Life

    New Season

    New Day

    New Life

    New Experience
  2. Interesting topic, Terri, and outstanding examples. I'll need to put my thinking cap on!

  3. I'll lead out. I tried a new shooting technique this morning. I need to find some better subject matter, but the technique worked perfectly. I was inspired by Jim's great mushroom photos. I put my D5600 with the fully articulating screen on my porch step, very low to the ground and then focused and took the photo by touching the screen while it was in live view. I haven't tried that yet with the D5600 and can see that a fully articulating touch screen is a great tool. I think I will experiment with new ways to use it this week by shooting high and low. Another new is the way the earth seems refreshed and new after a rainstorm. Maybe you would like to try some new technique, too?!

    Interesting theme and great example shots. Hopefully, I can squeak in some time to shoot (besides doing the Oktoberfest shooting).
  7. Can't wait to see it!!

    I hope you can. But there is certainly no pressure. It's supposed to be fun!!

  8. Well done, Terri. And for me the real advantage is that you can so easily take photos focused at different points and stack them in Photoshop or other software to get just the range of focus that you want.
  9. Lovely idea Terri and your examples are perfect. There's a whole heap of stuff that would be new to me that I haven't tried. Always good to get a push into exploring things.

  13. Terri -

    This qualifies as "virtually new" for me because I hardly ever think about B&W - this is a snap of the Book Cliffs clearing after this morning's dense fog.

    Very dramatic! B&W works well here.

  16. I'm like you, hardly ever think about black and white. But it's a super nice one. You should think about it more often!! Thank you for participating.
