I had a go at taking some shots for the photo 3 competition for club today, but I really couldn’t get inspired. There are three objects that need to be incorporated into the images and try as I might I just can’t think of any way to do this that would also be interesting enough to stand out from the rest. So I will probably give this one a miss this time.
It got me thinking about the types of photography I enjoy the most. My husband thought it would be the portraiture because I do quite a bit of that, but infact I am more drawn to nature photography. With nature photography it is important not to modify the images other than the usual sharpening and cropping and I like this as it puts things on a more even keel when it comes to competitions. It’s not about who is the best in photoshop, it’s about who can take the best shot on the day.
