Thanks everyonebody for the messages of encouragement and welcome crazy corner...ha..ha..least I know Im in the right place.
So here is my first efford for bonus theme: Odd
Wanted to create something colourful, though now looking back at it appreciate the red looks pretty gaudy. Like most Ive gone for the odd number / odd one out interpretation. Just a warm up so look forward to getting more creative as we progress
Hi, strong start. The red BG really works for me. Well composed and then flame has been handled well. I do like the slight glow in the match head.
Nb. Just added a frame via Snapssed and it seemed to work well with the square format.
Odd - Well, what can I say... Love it, a very bright image, great colour, love the glow of the match head, and the square crop works really well, great start, look forward to seeing what you come up with next week
Seemed easy enough, this one captured on second attempt, but maybe I got lucky. Focused on the match head and took a test shot to expose for the background and matches first. Lit the match and waited for the initial flare to die down then took the shot. Opened in PS Raw and pulled the recovery slider as far to the right as possible to pull back some detail in the flame. Job done
Odd - Nice vivid image. How many shots did it take to get just the right amount of flame without losing too much of the match?
Linear/Line - Super clarity on this and the mono conversion really suits the image
Ive titled this "Play Dead" for weeks 02 theme: play
The photo of the foot I've taken myself then created a composite with a cockroach picture from the web.....Hope to try use the 52 challange to improve my composite skills as currently an absolute novice.
Self crit would be that more space required in from of the foot and at more of a side on angle to try and get the composite to look more real??
