WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE – WEEK 109 – MACRO

MACRO might be the most technically difficult theme on the WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE. Despite that, several people buckled up and gave it a spin!

But you didn’t come here to listen to me talk all tommyrot about participation rates, you came to see the MACRO submissions!

A solid week of submissions!

But enough dwelling on the past. Time to look to the future. We are all interested in the future, for that is where you and I are going to spend the rest of our lives. And remember my friend, future events such as these will affect you in the future! This week’s theme:


WEEK 109 - REFLECTION
REFLECTION!


REFLECTION! What a great theme!!! Also, I don’t think it requires much of an explanation. Some surfaces show back what is looking at them. Mirrors for example. Water. Mylar. Of course their is more than one definition of REFLECTION. So interpret the theme as you see fit.

As always, I look forward to your interpretations!

A MESSAGE FROM THE PHOTOGRAPHY 139 RULES DIVISION

1. The picture has to be taken the week of the theme. This isn’t a curate your pictures challenge. This is a get your butt off the couch (my personal experience) and put your camera in your hands challenge. Don’t send me a picture of you next to the Eiffel Tower, when I know you were in Iowa all week. I will point out that I have let that slide some in the past. I will not in the future. Since it is literally about the only rule.

2. Your submission needs to be emailed to bennett@photography139.com by 11 AM on the Monday of the challenge. It should be pointed out that this blog auto-publishes at 12:01 on Mondays. So it wouldn’t hurt to get your picture in earlier.

That is it, them’s the rules.

WEEK 109 - MACRO
MACRO!


MACRO! What a great theme! MACRO is legit one of my favorite themes, but what is MACRO. MACRO is just some east coast elite’s way of sayin’ close-up photography. With all their fancy book learnin’.

Okay, as somebody that has been falsely accused of being an elitist, I will say that there is a lot more accurate definition of MACRO that deals with the relationship of the size of the actual object to the size of that object when recorded on to a 135mm negative. That being said, to do that type of true MACRO photography, you need to drop a certain amount of coin on equipment.

As a man of the people, we can just say that MACRO means getting up in somebody or something’s grill and getting a shot.

As always, I look forward to seeing everybody’s interpretations. That includes you Bill, Dawn, and Micky. If Becky can make a comeback, you can make a comeback. We ALL can make a comeback!

WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE – WEEK 103 – RUINS

This week’s WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE took the typical holiday in participation. That is to be expected. What wasn’t to be expected was that there was a first time participant. Joe Duff submitted his first ever (and hopefully not last) submission. He managed to do it while being in the heart of Hurricane Harvey. So I guess whatever excuse you were going to give me about not being able to take a picture this week seems a little bit lame right about now. Doesn’t it.

LOW PERSPECTIVE! What a great theme! What is LOW PERSPECTIVE? It is simple. You just have to get low to the ground. Think of what the world must look like to one of nature’s noblest of creatures, the rat, then photograph that view.

COLD! What a great theme! I don’t think I need to explain COLD. It is a temperature that we haven’t felt much of lately here in the middle of the Cyclone State. But it is more than just a temperature. People can be COLD. Actions can be COLD. Feel free to define COLD any way you see fit!

A solid week of submissions!

But enough dwelling on the past. Time to look to the future. We are all interested in the future, for that is where you and I are going to spend the rest of our lives. And remember my friend, future events such as these will affect you in the future! This week’s theme:


WEEK 99 - YELLOW
YELLOW!

YELLOW! What a great theme! I don’t even think I need to explain yellow. I will point out for some people out there that gold and yellow are not the same color. I know people in Iowa City don’t understand the difference. Perhaps if they would’ve went to a better school. But I digress. YELLOW! Get off your duff and photograph something that is YELLOW!

As always, I look forward to seeing your interpretations!

HOUSEKEEPING

A MESSAGE FROM THE PHOTOGRAPHY 139 RULES DIVISION

1. The picture has to be taken the week of the theme. This isn’t a curate your pictures challenge. This is a get your butt off the couch (my personal experience) and put your camera in your hands challenge. Don’t send me a picture of you next to the Eiffel Tower, when I know you were in Iowa all week. I will point out that I have let that slide some in the past. I will not in the future. Since it is literally about the only rule.

2. Your submission needs to be emailed to bennett@photography139.com by 11 AM on the Monday of the challenge. It should be pointed out that this blog auto-publishes at 12:01 on Mondays. So it wouldn’t hurt to get your picture in earlier.

That is it, them’s the rules.

A MESSAGE FROM THE PHOTOGRAPHY 139 SHAMELESS SELF-PROMOTION DIVISION

Nothing new to report. I’ll try to do better next week.

Want your own Photography 139 email subscription? Call, email, or text me and I’ll get you the hook up.

A MESSAGE FROM THE PHOTOGRAPHY 139 GALLERY DIVISION

Sometimes people send me descriptions of their photos. I’ve never done anything with that information in the past. However, if you send me a description in the future, I will add it to your image in the Weekly Photo Challenge Gallery that houses all the submissions.

**************************************

That’s all I got for today, so if the good Lord’s willin’ and the creek don’t rise, we will commune right here again next Monday. Hopefully it will be a very yellow Monday!
