    Photography Contest Mark XVI

    What are the rules?

    No photoshopping allowed, besides cropping and changing a picture to B&W or Sepia, and making panoramas.
    Post production editing is allowed. The editing done should be global, such as contrast, brightness, or overal tonal balancing (i.e. no sponge/dodge/burn, no brushes, vignetting, etc). Filters are prohibited. Any global editing should be used only to enhance the features that were captured in the shot to begin with. The only exception is converting to B&W or sepia.

    Tell us what you did, unless it's staring us right in the face, in which case you probably shouldn't have done it ^^

    Tell a bit about your image, and how you approached taking it.


    What equipment do I need?

    Well, as long as it can capture light and produce an image you can share with others, be it a analog camera, digital camera or maybe a cellphone camera, you are good to go.

    How do we submit the pictures?

    To make things easier for all of us, the kind and superior being that is mr_charism has supplied a 3dbuzz photo contest script that magically makes your images 3dbuzz-forum-friendly! I suggest using that, but you are of course free to choose any imagehost you like!

    For those that intend to use the magic that mr_charisma conjured, the link is http://www.20papercups.net/image_upload


    The theme

    As decided by mr_charisma, it's Focus & Context
    Focus & context is a user interaction and visualisation design concept. Essentially, a focus & context visualisation allows the user to focus on what they are interested in right now, while still providing the context around that particular element. Anyway, that is where the term comes from. What I'm interested in for this context is something like this:



    On one side you get this close up, and on the right is the context. What you need to do for this subject is to take two photos of the same thing; one a focus shot, and the other providing the context. I don't mean here that you set up the tripod, take one shot zoomed out, and another zoomed in, but you can do that if you want. Different points of view, exposures, etc. are fine, as long as there is a clear link between the focus and context shots. Also, although the image above is portrait photography, you can shoot whatever you want.

    Rule amendment
    You should submit a single image that is split in half, for each of the photos you take. No points are awarded for Photoshop wankery, so try to keep the transitions either to a simple split, or a very basic cross fade blend.



    DEADLINE
    The deadline will, as usual, be 3 weeks, meaning we end on April 7th, 23:59 GMT +1.

    If there are any questions, just ask here.

    Now let the photography commence!
    Please, call meg Johnny.

    Sounds like a great contest theme. I will see if I can come up with a good idea (already have a few things in my mind).

    Now I have to get my brain working again! What to shoot, what to shoot??? Hey Clone3d, do you have an extra Guiness? I'll join you in a pint of Brainstorming... or was that a pint of Guiness?
    For me, happiness is learning new things.
